Subject [jira] [Created] (AURORA-1614) Failed sandbox initialization can cause tasks to go LOST
Date Thu, 11 Feb 2016 16:39:18 GMT
Joshua Cohen created AURORA-1614:

             Summary: Failed sandbox initialization can cause tasks to go LOST
                 Key: AURORA-1614
             Project: Aurora
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Executor
            Reporter: Joshua Cohen
            Priority: Minor

When we initialize the sandbox, we only catch Sandbox specific error types, meaning that if
an unexpected error is raised, the executor just hangs until the timeout is exceeded, at which
point the task goes lost.

We should instead broadly catch exceptions raised during sandbox initialization and quickly
fail tasks.

Additionally, the {{DockerDirectorySandbox}} was not properly catching errors raised when
creating/symlinking which led to the above problem in the event of a misconfiguration. In
practice this issue shouldn't have occurred in normal usage, but it made development slow
until I tracked down what was causing the tasks to just hang.
