Subject [GitHub] flink issue #5236: [FLINK-8322] support getting number of existing timers in...
Date Thu, 04 Jan 2018 11:19:23 GMT
Github user aljoscha commented on the issue:

    I'm sorry because my earlier comment on the Jira issue wasn't very clear. We might have
to take a step back here and think about what we want to achieve.
    When I mentioned that an extra bit of state could be kept I wasn't suggesting that we
add this to Flink proper, but that a user could do this. Adding it to Flink proper introduced
overhead for all users: keeping that extra bit of state can grow space requirements by quite
a bit and some users are already struggling with timer state size and we need to add the possibility
of storing timers in RocksDB.
    What do you think?
