Handoff waiting task

Is there a dependency on segment hand off task with the available historical nodes?
Does the ingestion task check available historical segments at hand off time?

Hi Chitra: Yes, the ingestion task has to wait till the segments become available on historicals, to claim a successful task. Why is the question?


Hi Ming,

Thanks for your response.

I see that we are kind of short of historical nodes, when it comes to segment hand off, since most of tthe historicals are busy in handling the current segment ingestion/storage.

Also, seems like historical node can serve only one request at a time, to store any datasource messages. Is my understanding correct?

The running ingestion task gets to failed state, when it doesnt see historical nodes being available after sometime.
