> When {{TaskSchedulerImpl}} fails to find an open slot for a task, it falls back to the
preemptor:
> {code}
> if (!offerQueue.launchFirst(getAssignerFunction(taskId, task))) {
>   // Task could not be scheduled.
>   maybePreemptFor(taskId);
>   return TaskSchedulerResult.TRY_AGAIN;
> }
> {code}
> This can be problematic when the task store is large (O(10k tasks)) and there is a steady
supply of PENDING tasks not satisfied by open slots.  This will manifest as an overall degraded/slow
scheduler, and logs of slow queries used for preemption:
> {noformat}
> I0125 17:47:36.970 THREAD23 org.apache.aurora.scheduler.storage.mem.MemTaskStore.fetchTasks:
Query took 107 ms: TaskQuery(owner:null, environment:null, jobName:null,
> taskIds:null, statuses:[KILLING, ASSIGNED, STARTING, RUNNING, RESTARTING], slaveHost:null,
instanceIds:null)
> {noformat}
> Several approaches come to mind to improve this situation (not mutually exclusive):
> - (easy) More aggressively back off on tasks that cannot be satisfied
> - (easy) Fall back to preemption less frequently
> - (easy) Gather the list of slaves from {{AttributeStore}} rather than {{TaskStore}}.
 This breaks the operation up into many smaller queries and reduces the amount of work in
cases where a match is found.  However, this would actually create more work when a match
is not found, so this approach is probably not helpful by itself.
> - (harder) Scan for preemption candidates asynchronously, freeing up the TaskScheduler
thread and the storage write lock.  Scans could be kicked off by the task scheduler, ideally
in a way that doesn't dogpile.  This could also be done in a weakly-consistent way to minimally
contribute to storage contention.
