Benjamin Mahler created MESOS-6220:

             Summary: HTTP handler failures should result in 500 response 
rather than 503 response.
                 Key: MESOS-6220
             Project: Mesos
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: libprocess
            Reporter: Benjamin Mahler
            Priority: Minor

Currently, when an HTTP handler fails, libprocess will send a {{503 Service 
Unavailable}} (see 

However, more appropriate would be to send a {{500 Internal Server Error}} 
given the documented behavior of these statuses:

*500 Internal Server Error*
A generic error message, given when an unexpected condition was encountered and 
no more specific message is suitable.

*503 Service Unavailable*
The server is currently unavailable (because it is overloaded or down for 
maintenance). Generally, this is a temporary state.
