Current behavior caches and checkpoints failures. While we may reasonably expect to see failures repeat with apps where none of the inputs, code, or execution site within a single run, we should not assume the same for a re-run of the same workflow.

For eg, parsl does not completely account for :

  • transient behavior on remote sites/nodes
  • changes in remote env w.r.t packages
  • external scripts and data

I wanted to capture the rationale for the change in checkpointing behavior, since this was discussed in the comments for PR #237
