Please Disable snapshots for 8195b9


(Lukasz Dobrzanski) #1

This cluster is used as build node only and because of async snapshots sometimes it fails build with

{"error":{"root_cause":[{"type":"illegal_argument_exception","reason":"Cannot delete indices that are being snapshotted: [[jobs_build_tests/gaC4OZjdTY60Rb4lqk1w5g]]. Try again after snapshot finishes or cancel the currently running snapshot."}],"type":"illegal_argument_exception","reason":"Cannot delete indices that are being snapshotted: [[jobs_build_tests/gaC4OZjdTY60Rb4lqk1w5g]]. Try again after snapshot finishes or cancel the currently running snapshot."},"status":400}

Please disable snapshots for this node (8195b9).

@lukmdo,

I had a look at the logging from the cluster mentioned. I don't see any snapshot failures, however I did see that you were able to delete the [jobs_build_tests/gaC4OZjdTY60Rb4lqk1w5g] index.

Do you have reason to believe that snapshotting is causing your cluster deeper problems?

Hi Jymit,

The problem is as follows:

  • there are NO cluster operation issues due snapshotting
  • cyclic build tasks (with Jenkins) fail when snapshot is running. Rather then adding more complexity to build (which does purge index on startup) I think its better to disable snapshots on that cluster

I hope this makes sense.
Please let me know if you have other ides to tackle this.
