Subject Internal buffers
Date Wed, 01 Jun 2016 09:54:33 GMT
I have a question regarding how tuples are buffered between (possibly 
chained) subtasks.

Is it correct that there is a buffer for each vertex in the DAG of subtasks? 
Regardless of task slot sharing? If yes, then the primary optimization in 
this regard is operator chaining.

Furthermore, how do these buffers translate into overhead? Is there a send 
thread and a receive thread per buffer, similar to Apache Storm?

I could not find details concerning such buffers in the relevant subsection 
under Concepts.

Thanks in advance.
