Subject Re: API request to submit job takes over 1hr
Date Thu, 02 Jun 2016 09:19:15 GMT
Hi Shannon,

thank you for further investigating the issue.
Its fine to keep the discussion on the user@ list. Most devs are on the
user list as well and we'll probably file some JIRAs.

Regarding your suggestions:
1. Not sure if making the job submission non-blocking is a good idea. We
would probably need to interrupt the submitting thread after a while, which
does not always work (we made the experience that Kafka and Hadoop for
example often ignore interrupts, or even worse gets stuck afterwards). This
would just hide the problems or introduce new issues.

2. As you've identified correctly, the real issue here is that the Kafka
consumer is querying the brokers for metadata from the constructor (= on
the client) not from the workers in the cluster (in the open() method).
Changing the behavior is on my todo list. If you want, you can file a JIRA
for this. If you have also time to work on this, you can of course also
open a pull request. Otherwise, some contributors from the Flink community
can take care of the implementation.
The main reason why we do the querying centrally is: a) avoid overloading
the brokers b) send the same list of partitions (in the same order) to all
parallel consumers to do a fixed partition assignments (also across
restarts). When we do the querying in the open() method, we need to make
sure that all partitions are assigned, without duplicates (also after
restarts in case of failures).
