Subject [jira] [Commented] (FALCON-1363) Fix retry policy example in documentation
Date Mon, 03 Aug 2015 11:58:04 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FALCON-1363?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14651783#comment-14651783

Ajay Yadava commented on FALCON-1363:

+Retry policy defines how the workflow failures should be handled. Two retry policies are
defined: periodic and exp-periodic(exponential backoff). Depending on the delay and number
of attempts, the workflow is re-tried after specific intervals.
Should be exp-backoff instead of exp-periodic.
There are 3 retry policies and not two. periodic/ exp-backoff and final.

<xs:documentation>Retry defines how to handle workflow failures. Policy type - periodic,
+                        backoff along with the delay define how frequently the workflow should
be re-tried. Number of
+                        attempts define how many times to re-try the failures.
Policy type (periodic/exp-backoff/final) ...

We should also add documentation to explain the various policies and how they work with example.
However, that can be tackled in a separate JIRA, this adds value on it's own.

But in Falcon process.xsd there is no backoff policy, it is periodic, exp-backoff and final.
