What would you like to be added:
Remove the "missed start times" suspension on CronJobs, OR allow this behavior to be customized.

Why is this needed:
CronJobs will suspend if 100 start times are missed. There are many ways that this could happen:

  • Pods get stuck in Pending/Init
  • Containers are crashing (bad version, bad data/APIs, etc)
  • A job runs for a very long time

This behavior may be useful in some cases, but it is also extremely frustrating, and makes CronJobs a very hands-on resource. For example, if a service owner deploys a bad change that breaks a minutely cronjob, they have 100 minutes to deploy the fix, or they will need to alter the CronJob object.
