Executors are the mechanism by which task instances get run.
Airflow has support for various executors. Current used is determined by the
executor option in the
section of the configuration file. This option should contain the name executor e.g.

For more information on setting the configuration, see Setting Configuration Options.
If you want to check which executor is currently set, you can use
airflow config get-value core executor command as in
the example below.
$ airflow config get-value core executor SequentialExecutor
