Subject [jira] [Commented] (FLINK-5479) Per-partition watermarks in FlinkKafkaConsumer should consider idle partitions
Date Mon, 05 Mar 2018 20:10:00 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FLINK-5479?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16386676#comment-16386676

ASF GitHub Bot commented on FLINK-5479:

Github user EronWright commented on the issue:

    I think the ideal would be that idleness would occur only for tail reads, i.e. due to
a timeout from `kafkaConsumer.poll(pollTimeout)`.    In other words, an intermittent connection
issue would ideally not trigger idleness.

> Similar to what's happening to idle sources blocking watermark progression in downstream
operators (see FLINK-5017), the per-partition watermark mechanism in {{FlinkKafkaConsumer}}
is also being blocked of progressing watermarks when a partition is idle. The watermark of
idle partitions is always {{Long.MIN_VALUE}}, therefore the overall min watermark across all
partitions of a consumer subtask will never proceed.
> It's normally not a common case to have Kafka partitions not producing any data, but
it'll probably be good to handle this as well. I think we should have a localized solution
similar to FLINK-5017 for the per-partition watermarks in {{AbstractFetcher}}.
