Unnecessary offloading warnings, failed tasks?

Post by pirx »

Hi,

on a daily base I see failed offload jobs with the following errors. I think there is not much I can do here and I don't know if a job with a vib that already has been offloaded has to been marked as failed. Most of the errors I see in task list are not really things I can change and I don't see them as that critical. Wouldn't a warning status be better than and error with job status failed?
21.04.2021 20:05:06 :: Required backup infrastructure resources have been assigned
21.04.2021 20:06:30 :: xxx.vib has already been offloaded, skipping
21.04.2021 20:06:30 :: Updating metadata for backup file xxx.vib from index
21.04.2021 20:10:36 :: Task failed unexpectedly
21.04.2021 20:10:36 :: Processing finished with errors at 21.04.2021 20:10:36
20.04.2021 21:45:49 :: Offloading xxxx to DE-WBE-B01-S3
21.04.2021 09:45:51 :: Required backup files were not released after set interval, cancelling the job.
21.04.2021 09:45:51 :: Processing finished with errors at 21.04.2021 09:45:51
20.04.2021 09:37:04 :: Item [] is locked by running session xxxx Offload [SOBR Tiering]
20.04.2021 09:37:04 :: Processing finished with errors at 20.04.2021 09:37:04

Hello!

Our event event severity paradigm has been as follows:
1. No backup is created > Error
2. Backup is created but urgent attention is needed > Warning

Here, it is clearly the first case.

Thanks!

I've another one. I've now set time periods for copy jobs and offload tasks, so that backup jobs run without immediate copy and offloads interfering (all slots for backups). Now all copy jobs and offload task failed with error at 20:00 - when those jobs are not allowed to run. It makes time periods a bit useless if I'm flooded with failed job alerts for something I enabled deliberately. It would also be nice if the messages would be the same (Job was stopped due to backup window setting <-> Data transfer is currently restricted).

Code: Select all

Offload
28.05.2021 16:35:57 :: Processing BJ-DE-ViCluster20-3-WBE SDET3395 Error: Job was stopped due to backup window setting  

Copy
28.05.2021 20:01:03 :: Error: Data transfer is currently restricted
