Subject Re: Aurora reconciliation and Master fail over

"1. When mesos sends slave lost after 10 mins in this situation , why does
aurora not act on it?"

Because Mesos also sends TASK_LOST for every task running on the agent
whenever it calls slaveLost:

When it is time to remove an agent, the master removes the agent from the
list of registered agents in the master’s durable state
<> (this
will survive master failover). The master sends a slaveLost callback to
every registered scheduler driver; it also sends TASK_LOST status updates
for every task that was running on the removed agent.
