Subject [jira] [Created] (MESOS-6660) Status updates and disconnected frameworks
Date Thu, 01 Dec 2016 15:07:58 GMT
Neil Conway created MESOS-6660:

             Summary: Status updates and disconnected frameworks
                 Key: MESOS-6660
             Project: Mesos
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: master
            Reporter: Neil Conway

When the master receives a status update, it invokes {{Master::forward}} to send the status
update to the framework. {{Master::forward}} also updates the task's {{status_update_state}}
and {{status_update_uuid}} fields. However, {{Master::forward}} is not invoked for disconnected

This scheme has the following drawbacks:

# Logically, {{Master::forward}} probably shouldn't be updating the state of a task; {{forward}}
should just forward messages.
# The reasoning for not updating {{status_update_state}} and {{status_update_uuid}} for disconnected
frameworks is to try to avoid inconsistencies upon framework reconciliation -- we don't want
reconciliation to show update X, but then the framework to receive a non-reconciliation update
Y, such that Y comes before X in the agent's order. I'm not sure that this is actually a problem
(since we wait for framework acks before forwarding subsequent status updates), but in any
case, depending on framework connectivity _cannot_ be a correct fix: whether the master thinks
the framework is connected at a given time is unreliable and racy (i.e., the master might
think the framework is disconnected but it still might receive messages; similarly, "connected"
frameworks might not receive messages).
