Hi Ravi, are you using AUTO_FLUSH_BACKGROUND? You mention that you are trying to use getPendingErrors() but it sounds like it's not working for you -- can you be more specific about what you expect and what you are observing?

Thank Clifford. We are running Kudu 1.4 version. Till date we didn't see any issues in production and we are not losing tablet servers. But, as part of testing I have to generate few unforeseen cases to analyse the application performance. One among that is bringing down the tablet server or master server intentionally during which I observed the loss of records. Just wanted to test cases out of the happy path here. Once again thanks for taking time to respond to me.

I'll have to get back to you on the code bits, but I'm pretty sure we're doing simple sync batching. We're not in production yet, but after some months of development I haven't seen any failures, even when pushing load doing multiple years' backfill. I think the real question is why are you losing tablet servers? The only instability we ever had with Kudu was when it had that weird ntp sync issue that was fixed I think for 1.6. What version are you running? 

Anyway I would think that infinite loop should be catchable somewhere. Our pipeline is set to fail/retry with Flink snapshots. I imagine there is similar with Spark. Sorry I cant be of more help!

Thanks for the response. Well, I do agree that its simple and seamless. In my case, I am able to upsert ~25000 events/sec into Kudu. But, I am facing the problem when any of the Kudu Tablet or master server is down. I am not able to get a hold of the exception from client. The client is going into an infinite loop trying to connect to Kudu. Meanwhile, I am loosing my records. I tried handling the errors through getPendingErrors() but still it is helpless. I am using AsyncKuduClient to establish the connection and retrieving the syncClient from the Async to open the session and table. Any help?

While I can't speak for Spark, we do use the client API from Flink streaming and it's simple and seamless. It's especially nice if you require an Upsert semantic.

Anyone using Spark Streaming to ingest data into Kudu and using Kudu Client API to do so rather than the traditional KuduContext API? I am stuck at a point and couldn't find a solution.
