Subject [jira] [Commented] (AURORA-413) aurora update fails if update results in a pending job
Date Tue, 13 May 2014 00:15:16 GMT


Bill Farner commented on AURORA-413:

To give another angle on Maxim's reply, the default behavior of the updater is all-or-none.
 If the desired end state cannot be fully achieved, the update is considered a failure.

> Assume I have a job running on the cluster with 2 instances. Let us say both tasks are
in RUNNING state.
> At this point, I update my job to bump up the # of instances from 2 to 4, and do an aurora
update. As expected, it leaves the 2 running instances intact, and attempts to start instances
3 and 4. Assume instance 3 starts up fine and is in RUNNING state. If for some reason, the
cluster is in such a state that instance 4 cannot be scheduled immediately (ie. it is in PENDING
state). In that case, the update fails if the task does not move to RUNNING state in 30-45
seconds after attempting to launch. Since update fails, it kills instance 3 as well.
> aurora update should not fail if a task is in PENDING state since that task may get scheduled
when some other job finishes or fails. Also, if I were to do a aurora create instead with
# of instances = 4, it keeps 3 of them in RUNNING while the 4th instance is in PENDING state.
So, the behavior is different depending on whether we do a "aurora create" v "aurora update"
which ideally should not be the case.
