Hey guys, I’m confused how the garbage collector actually works in Nomad.
For some more context, I’m trying to retain allocations so that debugging is easier if a deployment goes bad. However, some allocations seems to be collected sooner then I expected.
I’ve been monitoring the logs related to garbage collecting but all reasons so far have been ‘forced collection’. I can’t really make heads or tails of it
I’ve set the limits for every client to it’s maximum, so (normally) that shouldn’t be the issue.
My main questions are;
- When are allocations marked as garbage and when are they collected?
- What would be the best way of changing this behavior?
