Hi team! On dagster 0.13.7, we are encountering this error sporadically. Could you assist us on identifying some potential root causes for it?

Hi Bolin. Which run launcher are you using? We've seen this error pop up before a k8s container restarts when a Dagster job hasn't successfully completed

we’re using the K8sRunLauncher

Yeah further up in the events I imagine you’ll see another pod start and emit the RUN_STARTED event. It then died for whatever reason (e.g. node spun down) and Kubernetes has a known issue where even if you disable retries on a pod, it will still try to restart it. We don’t support k8s pods restarting like that so we guard against it with this status check.
You’ll want to • investigate why the pod failed in the first place (too much resource usage? etc.) • if you decide it’s an ephemeral failure, you could consider configuring automatic retries at the dagster level
