Subject Re: [GSoc][flink-streaming] Interested in pursuing FLINK-1617 and FLINK-1534
Date Mon, 16 Mar 2015 09:52:08 GMT
Dear Akshay,

Thanks again for your interest and for the recent contribution to streaming.

Both of the projects mentioned wold be largely appreciated by the
community, and you can also propose other project suggestions here for

Regarding FLINK-1534, the thesis I mentioned serves as a starting point and
indeed the basic solution can be implemented with filtering and
windowing/mapping with some state storing whether the cause of an event has
been already seen. Solely relying on the now existing windowing API this
however might cause performance issues if the events also have an
expiration timeout - some optimization there would be included. The further
challenge is to try to further exploit the parallel job execution of Flink
to possibly scale a pattern matching query.
