Also, question about retries: what’s the default number of retries for attempting to fetch the flow definitions (e.g. from an S3 storage)? and does it change when the flow is restarted from the UI? (what we saw seemed like 4 retries by default and then 2 retries when restarted)

I’m not sure if there are any retries for that. Looking at the code, Prefect tries to get the flow and if it can’t retrieve the flow file from the provided location it raises an exception.

Hmm ok 🤔 because we’re seeing multiple pods created by a single flow run (that does nothing but fetch something from HTTP) so we wanted to make sure everything is working properly…
