Fault Tolerance in Mesos - Vinod Kone & Anand Mazumdar, Mesosphere

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Mesos is a widely used cluster resource manager that has been used in production at scale for some time. At its core, Mesos is a sophisticated distributed system with lots of components and failure scenarios. In datacenters, hardware/network failures are the norm rather than the exception. Being a distributed systems kernel, Mesos needs to be resilient to all of these failures, degrading gracefully wherever applicable. We believe that everyone running a Mesos cluster in production/building distributed systems would benefit from learning how Mesos does fault tolerance to reason better about failures in their cluster/adopt these battle-hardened best practices in their project.

This talk focuses on how various Mesos components like Master, Agent, Scheduler, Executor react to common failures like node failures/process crash, network partitions, Zookeeper failures etc.
This talk will cover the following specific topics:
- How Mesos masters/agents react to node failures and network partitions.
- Agent recovery after a process restart.
- Master health checks
- Executor health checks.
- Scheduler Disconnections/Partitions.
- Zookeeper Failures.
