Zookeeper: Distributed Process Coordination

by

Zookeeper: Distributed Process Coordination Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Building distributed applications is difficult enough without having to coordinate the actions that make them work. This practical guide shows how Apache ZooKeeper helps you manage distributed systems, so you can focus mainly on application logic. Even with ZooKeeper, implementing coordination tasks is not trivial, but this book provides good practices to give you a head start, and points out caveats that developers and administrators alike need to watch for along the way.

In three separate sections, ZooKeeper contributors Flavio Junqueira and Benjamin Reed introduce the principles of distributed systems, provide ZooKeeper programming techniques, and include the information you need to administer this service.

  • Learn how ZooKeeper solves common coordination tasks
  • Explore the ZooKeeper APIs Java and C implementations and how they differ
  • Use methods to track and react to ZooKeeper state changes
  • Handle failures of the network, application processes, and ZooKeeper itself
  • Learn about ZooKeepers trickier aspects dealing with concurrency, ordering, and configuration
  • Use the Curator high-level interface for connection management
  • Become familiar with ZooKeeper internals and administration tools

Synopsis:

If youre involved in large Hadoop projects, this book shows you how ZooKeeper simplifies the task of implementing a distributed system. Implementing coordination tasks with ZooKeeper is not entirely trivial. There are still subtle points and caveats to watch out for. With this book, ZooKeeper contributors Flavio Junqueira and Benjamin Reed provide good practices for building systems with this Apache software tool.

This book also:

  • Introduces a master-worker architecture as a running example
  • Includes examples of coordination primitives in the master-worker architecture, in addition to examples of real systems with those requirements
  • Presents information on handling events and changes in the system, specifically dealing with disconnected events and session expirations
  • Shows you how to download and install a Zookeeper release, including how to choose a cluster configuration
