This guide will help you check for common problems that cause the log ” [” + datafeedId + “] failed to remove task to stop unassigned datafeed ” to appear. To understand the issues related to this log, read the explanation below about the following Elasticsearch concepts: plugin, task.
A task is an Elasticsearch operation, which can be any request performed on an Elasticsearch cluster, such as a delete by query request, a search request and so on. Elasticsearch provides a dedicated Task API for the task management which includes various actions, from retrieving the status of current running tasks to canceling any long running task.
Get all currently running tasks on all nodes of the cluster
Apart from other information, the response of the below request contains task IDs of all the tasks which can be used to get detailed information about the particular task in question.
Get detailed information of a particular task
Where clQFAL_VRrmnlRyPsu_p8A:1132678759 is the ID of the task in below request
Get all the current tasks running on particular nodes
Cancel a task
Where clQFAL_VRrmnlRyPsu_p8A:1132678759 is the ID of the task in the below request
- The Task API will be most useful when you want to investigate the spike of resource utilization in the cluster or want to cancel an operation.
Log “[” + datafeedId + “] failed to remove task to stop unassigned datafeed” classname is TransportStopDatafeedAction.java.
We extracted the following from Elasticsearch source code for those seeking an in-depth context :
// already waits for these persistent tasks to disappear. persistentTasksService.sendRemoveRequest( datafeedTask.getId(); ActionListener.wrap( r -> auditDatafeedStopped(datafeedTask); e -> logger.error("[" + datafeedId + "] failed to remove task to stop unassigned datafeed"; e) ) ); allDataFeedsToWaitFor.add(datafeedTask); } }
