Retry failed Kapacitor Flux tasks

Use the kapacitor flux task retry-failed command to retry failed Kapacitor Flux task runs. Provide the following flags:

  • -i, --id: task ID
  • --before: Retry failed runs that occurred before this time (RFC3339 timestamp)
  • --after: Retry failed runs that occurred after this time (RFC3339 timestamp)
  • --dry-run: Output information about runs that would be retried without retrying the failed runs.
  • --task-limit: Limit the number of tasks to retry failed runs for (default: 100)
  • --run-limit: Limit the number of failed runs to retry per task (default: 100)

Rerun failed tasks with the Kapacitor API

The kapacitor flux task retry-failed command is a convenience command that identifies failed task runs and attempts to run them again. The Kapacitor API doesn’t provide a single endpoint for this functionality, but this process can be accomplished through a series of API calls. For more information, see Manage Flux task runs.
