      The issue is that implementation clears queue and ordering is even so that LocalExecutor may been kept idle for no reason.

       

      E.g. 

      1. 8 running task instances 0 in queue 0 open slots
      2. 5 new tasks pushed to queue
      3. 2 tasks get ready
      4. 6 running task instances 0 in queue 2 slots open
      5. 3 tasks get ready
      6. 3 running task instances 0 in queue 5 open slots
      7. 1 tasks get ready
      8. 2 running task instances 0 in queue 6 open slots
      9. 8 new tasks pushed to queue
      10. 1 running task instances 8 in queue 7 open slots
      11. 1 task get ready
      12. 7 running task instances 0 in queue 1 slots open

      So depending how often dag get rescheduled it might take long before we get more tasks for LocalExecutor. Also it feels that now some other dags may get scheduled just at the time when some tasks get ready and then kind of take place of tasks queued before because those are always removed at then end of every scheduler loop.

      So would it be beneficial to keep queued tasks in local executor queue so that LocalExecutor can start processing next task as soon as slot is available instead of waiting until dag get scheduled next time. 

      Also as seen in 1,2,3,4 and 9,10,11,12 it seems that ordering of operations in LocalExecutor heartbeating cause that actually after scheduler loop slots got available are not filled all. Only those slots get used which are available before current heartbeating or at least it looks like it.
