Subject [jira] [Created] (FLINK-1671) Add execution modes for programs
Date Tue, 10 Mar 2015 10:29:38 GMT
Stephan Ewen created FLINK-1671:

             Summary: Add execution modes for programs
                 Key: FLINK-1671
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FLINK-1671
             Project: Flink
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: 0.9
            Reporter: Stephan Ewen
            Assignee: Stephan Ewen
             Fix For: 0.9

Currently, there is a single way that programs get executed: Pipelined. With the new code
for batch shuffles (https://github.com/apache/flink/pull/471), we have much more flexibility
and I would like to expose that.

I suggest to add more execution modes that can be chosen on the `ExecutionEnvironment`:

  - {{BATCH}} A mode where every shuffle is executed in a batch way, meaning preceding operators
must be done before successors start. Only for the batch programs (d'oh).

  - {{PIPELINED}} This is the mode corresponding to the current execution mode. It pipelines
where possible and batches, where deadlocks would otherwise happen. Initially, I would make
this the default (be close to the current behavior). Only available for batch programs.

  - {{PIPELINED_WITH_BATCH_FALLBACK}} This would start out with pipelining shuffles and fall
back to batch shuffles upon failure and recovery, or once it sees that not enough slots are
available to bring up all operators at once (requirement for pipelining).

  - {{STREAMING}} This is the default and only way for streaming programs. All communication
is pipelined, and the special streaming checkpointing code is activated.
