Oozie skipping action as coordinators instance getting created after materialized time

New Contributor

off late i am seeing this issue in oozie , where the instance of a coordinator is getting kicked up after the (next materialized time) , for e.g if the coordinator was scheduled to start next action at 10 AM its only starting may 30 mins post that , and because of that it just creates the action and marks it as skipped with message current time is later than the nominal time of the next action

Question : Why is oozie not creating the action when it should ?

I have checked CPU utilization and memory utilization of server thinking server unable to trigger the action but server stats looks good ( CPU under 50 , memory under 20 %)

In your coordinator.xml set execution property to FIFO instead of LAST_ONLY.


This might work.
