      Description

      The problem: The JobManager (JM) is a single point of failure. When it crashes, TaskManagers (TM) fail all running jobs and try to reconnect to the same JM. A failed JM looses all state and can not resume the running jobs; even if it recovers and the TMs reconnect.

      Solution: implement JM fault tolerance/high availability by having multiple JM instances running with one as leader and the other(s) in standby. The exact coordination and state update protocol between JM, TM, and clients is covered in sub-tasks/issues.
