Subject Re: Zookeeper Usage and Operations

Thanks, Ed. I had seen that link. I am really looking for a clear outline/ set of rules as
to when and why to use zookeeper and when and why not to. 

Then if using it makes sense, it seems like there are some value known details about how to
keep zookeeper happy that would be great to have documented.
