------------------------------------

             Summary: Replace Akka's deatch watch with own heartbeat on the TM side
                 Key: FLINK-4944
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FLINK-4944
             Project: Flink
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: TaskManager
    Affects Versions: 1.2.0
            Reporter: Till Rohrmann
            Assignee: Till Rohrmann
             Fix For: 1.2.0


In order to properly implement FLINK-3347, the {{TaskManager}} must no longer use Akka's death
watch mechanism to detect {{JobManager}} failures. The reason is that a hard {{JobManager}}
failure will lead to quarantining the {{JobManager's}} {{ActorSystem}} by the {{TaskManagers}}.
This in combination with FLINK-3347 would lead to a shutdown of all {{TaskManagers}}.

Instead we should use our own heartbeat signal to detect dead {{JobManagers}}. In case of
a heartbeat timeout, the {{TaskManager}} won't shut down but simply cancel and clear everything.
