Subject Re: Checkpoint expired before completing
Date Sat, 02 Dec 2017 16:58:20 GMT
Hi Steven!

You are right, there could be some cascading effect from previous
I think the best way to handle that is to set the "minimum pause between
checkpoints". In fact, I would actually recommend this over the checkpoint
interval parameter.

The pause will allow the job to handle such effects that built up during an
unhealthy checkpoint. You can for example set the checkpoint interval to 2
mins and set the pause to 1.5 mins. That way, if a checkpoint takes longer
than usual, the next one will still wait for 1.5 mins after the previous
one completed or expired, giving the job time to catch up.
