Subject [jira] [Commented] (BEAM-1458) Checkpoint support in Beam
Date Thu, 22 Jun 2017 05:16:00 GMT


Reuven Lax commented on BEAM-1458:

Correct - I'm working on a doc for snapshot/update support for Beam. My proposal is a bit
more general than this as it includes the following addition. Start a new (possibly different)
pipeline from a checkpoint. This allows the user to modify their code, possibly add new stages,
and then resume that pipeline from a checkpoint. This is a generalization of the "update"
feature that Dataflow has. It requires a compatibility check to ensure that the new pipeline
is compatible with the checkpoint.

It would be useful for debugging one part of a long flow, when you would otherwise have to
run many steps to get to the one you care about.
