 The central part of Flink's fault tolerance mechanism is drawing consistent snapshots of
the distributed data stream and operator state.
 These shapshots act as consistent checkpoints to which the system can fall back in case of
a failure. Flink's mechanism for drawing these
-snapshots is described in "[Lightweight Asynchronous Snapshots for Distributed Dataflows](http://arxiv.org/abs/1506.08603)".
It is a modification of the
