Subject Duplicate task ID for same framework on different agents
Date Thu, 21 Dec 2017 04:26:09 GMT
Hi all,

We have seen a mesos master crash loop after a leader failover. After more
investigation, it seems that a same task ID was managed to be created onto
multiple Mesos agents in the cluster.

One possible logical sequence which can lead to such problem:

1. Task T1 was launched to master M1 on agent A1 for framework F;
2. Master M1 failed over to M2;
3. Before A1 reregistered to M2, the same T1 was launched on to agent A2:
M2 does not know previous T1 yet so it accepted it and sent to A2;
4. A1 reregistered: this probably crashed M2 (because same task cannot be
added twice);
5. When M3 tries to come up after M2, it further crashes because both A1
and A2 tried to add a T1 to the framework.

(I only have logs to prove the last step right now)

This happened on 1.4.0 masters.

Although this is probably triggered by incorrect retry logic on framework
side, I wonder whether Mesos master should do extra protection to prevent
such issue to cause master crash loop. Some possible ideas are to instruct
one of the agents carrying tasks w/ duplicate ID to terminate corresponding
tasks, or just refuse to reregister such agents and instruct them to

I also filed MESOS-8353 <>
to track this potential bug. Thanks!
