Subject Re: What is correct behavior for spark.task.maxFailures?
Date Tue, 25 Apr 2017 02:31:26 GMT
Thanks a lot @ Dongjin, @Ryan

I am using Spark 1.6.  I agree with your assesment Ryan.  Further
investigation seemed to suggest that our cluster was probably at 100%
capacity at that point of time.  Though tasks were failing on that slave,
still it was accepting the task, and task  retries exhausted much faster
than the other slaves freeing up to accept those tasks.
