Subject Pause DAG leading to Hang State of DAG
Date Wed, 25 Jul 2018 13:02:20 GMT
Hi Everyone,

We are using Airflow v1.9 and observing a pattern where we have few DAGs
marked in paused state and scheduled existing DAG runs are not getting
marked success/failure instead they are always in running state.

Following is the screenshot of dag table where it can be clearly seen that
DAG is in paused state.

Following is the screenshot of task_instance table where state for two
executions of a DAG having single task has been marked as success.

Following is the screenshot of dag_run table where both the executions of
[image: dag_run.png]

The moment, we unpause the DAG, it will back fill all the missed executions
along with the changing state of existing DAG runs in dag_run table. Since,
we've written a DELETE functionality in an abstracted form which works only
if the DAG is disabled & no active runs are there, we could not perform
DELETE operation as runs are in running state forever in such scenarios.

Is it a default behavior that if a DAG is disabled then no further dag run
will be kicked off along with no execution of residual part of running
instances of DAG(may be 2/3 task instances) which was unprocessed by the
time paused state was requested? If this is a bug, we can open JIRA and
also contribute.

Let us know, if additional information is required. Would love to get this
