Subject Airflow parallelism
Date Mon, 17 Jul 2017 06:54:41 GMT
Hi there,
I'm having a hard time to understand airflow parallelism. I'm running
Airflow with the following configuration

Executor: LocalExecutor
parallelism: 156
Airflow version: 1.8.1

I assume the maximum number of "Task Instances" would be 156 at any given
time, but I constantly see the active "Task Instance" around 250 sometimes.
Wonder why I'm seeing this behavior.
