Subject [jira] [Commented] (MESOS-1529) Handle a network partition between Master and Slave
Date Tue, 24 Jun 2014 16:02:24 GMT


Tobias Weingartner commented on MESOS-1529:

I don't think that #2 is an option.  We may be able to add extra information/messages to let
the frameworks know that something has been lost "potentially", and allow the frameworks to
choose which side of CAP they land on.  With the current assumptions and implementation, I
believe that modifying #2 would be a mistake.

> If a network partition occurs between a Master and Slave, the Master will remove the
Slave (as it fails health check) and mark the tasks being run there as LOST. However, the
Slave is not aware that it has been removed so the tasks will continue to run.
> (To clarify a little bit: neither the master nor the slave receives 'exited' event, indicating
that the connection between the master and slave is not closed).
> There are at least two possible approaches to solving this issue:
> 1. Introduce a health check from Slave to Master so they have a consistent view of a
network partition. We may still see this issue should a one-way connection error occur.
> 2. Be less aggressive about marking tasks and Slaves as lost. Wait until the Slave reappears
and reconcile then. We'd still need to mark Slaves and tasks as potentially lost (zombie state)
but maybe the Scheduler can make a more intelligent decision.
