  • Description:

Hi, Ive been running an ETL from my GCP SQL database to Big Query for a few months (incremental, based on updatedAt).
Im seeing an issue where sometimes the job just hangs in “Running” state, very much indefinitely, for no apparent reason (hours), and I need to go and click “cancel” so that a new job takes over. It’s completely intermittent and a cancel usually “unblocks” it. Im wondering if there is a way to set a timeout so that it cancels itself after a certain amount of time or something of that effect.

There is an env variable you can configure to throw timeout.

But SYNC_JOB_MAX_TIMEOUT_DAYS=3 the minimal possible is 1 day.

Yeah 1 day is way too much. If there was a SYNC_JOB_MAX_TIMEOUT_HOURS that would be ok.
