             Summary: toString of CollectionInputFormat takes long time when the collection
is huge
                 Key: FLINK-2090
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FLINK-2090
             Project: Flink
          Issue Type: Improvement
            Reporter: Till Rohrmann
            Priority: Minor


The {{toString}} method of {{CollectionInputFormat}} calls {{toString}} on its underlying
{{Collection}}. Thus, {{toString}} is called for each element of the collection. If the {{Collection}}
contains many elements or the individual {{toString}} calls for each element take a long time,
then the string generation can take a considerable amount of time. [~mikiobraun] noticed that
when he inserted several jBLAS matrices into Flink.

The {{toString}} method is mainly used for logging statements in {{DataSourceNode}}'s {{computeOperatorSpecificDefaultEstimates}}
method and in {{JobGraphGenerator.getDescriptionForUserCode}}. I'm wondering whether it is
necessary to print the complete content of the underlying {{Collection}} or if it's not enough
to print only the first 3 elements in the {{toString}} method.
