Subject Re: GridDhtInvalidPartitionException takes the cluster down
Date Tue, 26 Mar 2019 11:24:00 GMT
Nikolay,

Feel free to suggest better error messages to indicate internal/critical
failures. User actions in response to critical failures are rather limited:
mail to user-list or maybe file an issue. As for repetitive warnings, it
makes sense, but requires additional stuff to deliver such signals, mere
spamming to log will not have an effect.

Anyway, when experienced committers suggest to disable failure handling and
hide existing issues, I feel as if they are pulling my leg.

Best regards,
Andrey Kuznetsov.
