kl0u opened a new pull request #6466: [FLINK-10005][DataStream API] StreamingFileSink: sets
initialPartCounter=maxUsed in new Buckets
URL: https://github.com/apache/flink/pull/6466
   ## What is the purpose of the change
   In the `StreamingFileSink` whenever a new bucket is created, we provide it with the initial
part counter to use for its part files. In addition, when a bucket has no in-progress or pending
files, it is removed from the state. 
   This behavior was leading to the problem:
   * bucket X starts with partCounter = 0
   * creates a new part file, i.e. partCounter = 1
   * everything gets committed and bucket X is empty so it gets removed from the state.
   * a new element comes in, and the bucket starts again with 0.
   This was solved for when recovering from a failure, but not if this deletion and creation
of a bucket happens in normal execution. This PR solves this issue.
   ## Brief change log
   We change the `initialPartCounter` argument passed when creating a new bucket, to be the
`max` across all local buckets. This allows to be sure that we do not ovewrite anything and
also we do not need to the `blind searches` for file names in order to determine a valid part
counter. The latter would not work in eventually-consistent filesystems.
   ## Verifying this change
   Updated existing tests to cover this scenario.
