Re: Flink Exception - assigned slot container was removed


It looks that some of your slots were freed during the job execution (possibly due to idle for too long). AFAIK the exception was thrown when a pending Slot request was removed. You can try increase the “Slot.idle.timeout” to mitigate this issue (default is 50000, try 3600000 or higher).

Hi, I have a Flink application sourcing from a topic in Kafka (400 partitions) and sinking to S3 using bucketingsink and using RocksDb for checkpointing every 2 mins. The Flink app runs with parallelism 400 so that each worker handles a partition. This is using Flink 1.5.2. The Flink cluster uses 10 task managers with 40 slots each.

After running for a few days straight, it encounters a Flink exception:
Org.apache.flink.util.FlinkException: The assigned slot container_1234567_0003_01_000009_1 was removed.

This causes the Flink job to fail. It is odd to me. I am unsure what causes this. Also, during this time, I see some checkpoints stating "checkpoint was declined (tasks not ready)". At this point, the job is unable to recover and fails. Does this happen if a slot or worker is not doing processing for X amount of time? Would I need to increase the Flink config properties for the following when creating the Flink cluster in yarn?


Any help would be greatly appreciated.
