What happens if a worker crashes suddenly?


#1

Say a worker, 10 task containers are running on it, suddenly crashes, will ATC auto return those tasks on other workers?


#2

if the tasks are running at the moment of the crash, the build will fail with no recovery. Feel free to upvote https://github.com/concourse/concourse/issues/2581 :slight_smile:

If your pipeline is idempotent, a workaround is to add a time resource as watchdog that starts the pipeline periodically.
