I can't seem to duplicate this, do you have a stack trace?
Comment 4 Tzu-Mainn Chen 2012-09-10 15:48:58 EDT
Partial stack trace:

/usr/share/aeolus-conductor/vendor/provider_selection/strategies/penalty_for_failure/strategy.rb:41:in `calculate'
/usr/share/aeolus-conductor/vendor/provider_selection/strategies/penalty_for_failure/strategy.rb:39:in `each'
/usr/share/aeolus-conductor/vendor/provider_selection/strategies/penalty_for_failure/strategy.rb:39:in `calculate'

/usr/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/actionpack-3.0.10/lib/action_controller/metal/implicit_render.rb:4:in `send_action'

Re-assigning to ifarkas, as he knows the most about provider selection (I think; Imre, correct me if I'm wrong).  It looks like the problem is with this line:

            failures_count[provider_account] =
              provider_account.failure_count(:from => Time.now - @options[:time_period_minutes].minutes)

I can't figure out how @options is set. . . ?
Comment 5 Imre Farkas 2012-09-11 06:34:38 EDT
It's set in the included module which you can find in lib/provider_selection/chainable_strategy.rb.
Comment 6 Imre Farkas 2012-09-11 07:27:57 EDT
I am unable to replicate this issue too. 

I guess the steps in the description is missing the enabling and the configuration of the Penalty for Failure strategy because the stacktrace is from this strategy.

What was the settings for the Penalty for Failure strategy when you experienced the issue?
Comment 7 Aziza Karol 2012-09-11 08:04:40 EDT
Yes, you are right.I missed this step.The setting for Penalty for Failure strategy was enabled.

if the penalty for Failure strategy is on,we get the error.
I am able to replicate this issue.
