Subject Marathon can no longer deploy any apps after a failover
Date Thu, 16 Jul 2015 12:29:56 GMT

If i restart a current framework leader for marathon ( the host from active frameworks tab
in mesos ui) , a new one is elected after a moment and any new deployments are stuck infinitely
at  'deploying' state (empty black bar, 0/1 and hanging - with debug level i dont see any
errors in marathon/mesos logs)

Also the old tasks are untouchable at that time - yes, they keep running, but cant kill, restart
nor scale them.

When that happens i can:

stop marathon on all masters

remove the framework via a curl to mesos api /shutdown

purge /marathon from zookeper cli

restart docker services on all slaves (that kills the zombie containers)

restart mesos-slave services on all slaves (pampering my paranoia here)
then i can deploy apps again.

How can i avoid this problem? Any basic settings im missing? This is scary, as the reboot
of a single master (out of 3 or 5 servers) freezes everything that is deployed using marathon,
and the steps to reclaim control introduce downtime to every single app sunning there.


Running ubuntu 14.04.2. LTS

mesos                               0.22.1-1.0.ubuntu1404

marathon                            0.9.0-1.0.381.ubuntu1404

chronos                             2.3.4-1.0.81.ubuntu1404

The cluster  uses 3 masters and a 15 slaves. Also the master machines are running mesos-slave
process (albeit those machines give only a  portion of resources as offerrings)

The configuration for mesos/marathon is very "default" dependant, options specified You can
see below. The quorum is 2.

Marathon service is run on 3 master machines
