Here are some ways to improve the DAG tasks running speed while using KubernetesExecutor for airflow:

  1. Increase the resources: You can increase the resources assigned to the Docker containers to speed up the execution of the tasks. This can be done by setting the "resources" parameter in the Kubernetes pod specification.

  2. Use resource limits: You should set resource limits on the Docker containers to ensure that they don't consume too much CPU or memory during execution. This can be done by setting the "limits" parameter in the Kubernetes pod specification.

  3. Use sidecar containers: You can use sidecar containers to improve the performance of the main container. These containers can perform tasks such as data pre-processing, log aggregation, and data caching, which can speed up the execution of tasks.

  4. Use custom Docker images: You should create custom Docker images for your tasks that contain all the required dependencies and libraries. This can help avoid the overhead of downloading and installing dependencies during DAG execution.

  5. Use node affinity: You can use node affinity settings in Kubernetes to ensure that tasks are scheduled on nodes with a high number of available resources. This can help speed up task execution by reducing the amount of contention for resources.

  6. Optimize DAG dependencies: You can optimize the dependencies between tasks in your DAG to ensure that tasks are executed in an efficient manner. This can reduce the time needed to complete the entire DAG.
