Log Context

Log “could not isolate all datafeeds while force closing jobs ” classname is
We extracted the following from Elasticsearch source code for those seeking an in-depth context :

                // after the isolation request fails but before we follow up with the force close. In this case force stopping
                // the datafeed will gracefully close the associated job if the datafeed has an end time; which is not what we
                // want. But this will be a rare edge case. Hopefully the loopholes can be closed during the job/datafeed
                // unification project. In the meantime we'll log at a level that is usually enabled; to make diagnosing the
                // race condition easier.
      "could not isolate all datafeeds while force closing jobs " + openJobs; e);
