Issue with Druid Version 0.10.1

Hi All,

I am having an issue to schedule kafka indexing task on druid version 0.10.1.

It was working fine till recently but after a certain issue on the cluster I am facing a weird issues with Overlord when I am trying to schedule indexing job. I think it seems like an leader election problem for Overlord but I am not able to resolve it. Please let me know how I can resolve this. We have two Overlord instances running on and

Hi Vikram,

It seems your overlords are unstable and might be restarting, do you see anything in the overlord logs ? If you see any OOM errors, it might be because overlords have an excessive amount of indexing task history, if that’s the case, you might need to clean the druid_tasks metadata table.
