> Allow for longer normalized keys
> --------------------------------
>                 Key: FLINK-1292
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FLINK-1292
>             Project: Flink
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: Local Runtime
>    Affects Versions: 0.8-incubating
>            Reporter: Stephan Ewen
>             Fix For: 0.8-incubating
> The normalized key sorter currently has a hardwired limit of a normalized key size of
8 bytes. This still comes from the "single key" era.
> For composite keys, this length is easily exceeded and sorts cannot happen as fast as
the could. On the other hand, setting the value arbitrarily large impacts memory consumption.
> I propose to extend this to allow for 8 bytes per key up to a total length of 16 bytes.
This fits at least two composite longs, or a sequence of Ints.
