Subject Re: Issue with Airflow - Jobs are not triggered to run after a random period of time
Date Thu, 01 Sep 2016 14:54:10 GMT
As far as I know even Airbnb themselves restart their schedulers every 30
minutes because of this issue. I ended up doing it as well with a cron job
after giving up hope that it would be fixed in the short term.
