Subject Re: Question About Emitted, Transferred and Acked Bolts

Hi Nathan,

I have more acked than executed for some bolts and reverse in others. In what scenario will
this happen?

Subject: Re: Question About Emitted, Transferred and Acked Bolts

executed = # of times you called executed
acked = # of executed tuples that you acked; ideally this will match executed
emitted = # of tuples that you emitted; if you call emit more than once per execute call this
can be higher than execute count
transferred = # of tuples transferred downstream; if you have 2 bolts subscribing to your
bolt, then this count can be higher than emitted.

Can you guys help me understand difference between emitted, transferred and acked tuples.

In my case every tuple emitted by ablog-filter-bolt will be processed by ablog-flatten-xml-bolt
which will then be written by ablog-hdfs-bolt to hdfs. Ideally all metrics for executed/acked
should match after tuples are emitted from ablog-filter-bolt . I'm not sure why there is so
much discrepancy in emitted/transferredacked tuple count between these bolts although it dosent
show any failed tuples.

Any ideas what I can check and how to interpret metrics correctly?
