Hey, we are using Spark task and encountered an implicit retry without us configuring it explicitly. When we run
kubectl get sparkapplication ...
we see
Copy code
FLYTE_MAX_ATTEMPTS: "1"
      FLYTE_ATTEMPT_NUMBER: "3"
Is this some default bahavior with spark tasks or a potential bug?

This could be a system retry, but would love to more. System retry can happen, if the job never launched

This is the Execution Error. It looks like the error is related to our code but the UI says that it is a system error. 1. How do we distinguish system error vs user error 2. Is the system error that triggers retries? 3. If so is there a way to configure the retry globally for system/user error?

@Ketan (kumare3) Hey, just wanted to check in and see if you could respond to the questions above, that would be super helpful for us, thanks in advance!

Hey folks, Flyte will be conservative when it cannot figure out system vs user errror, it will default to marking it as system error. But a platform admin can resolve it to being a user error

I see, then another following up question is if it’ possible to config the number of retires for these system errors? And also for user errors, apart from setting the retries in the task decorator, is it possible to config time of retry globally for the whole project?

For user error no, but number of system retries can be configured

Do you mind pointing out where it can be configured? Thanks🙇‍♀️

That is configured in flytepropeller check the config docs (afk) it should say system retries
