Subject [DISCUSS] FLIP-5 Only send data to each taskmanager once for broadcasts
Date Fri, 22 Jul 2016 12:59:59 GMT
Hi everybody,

I want to improve the performance of broadcasts in Flink. Therefore Till
told me to start a FLIP on this topic to discuss how to go forward to solve
the current issues for broadcasts.

The problem in a nutshell: Instead of sending data to each taskmanager only
once, at the moment the data is sent to each task. This means if there are
3 slots on each taskmanager we will send the data 3 times instead of once.

There are multiple ways to tackle this problem and I started to do some
research and investigate. You can follow my thought process here:


This is my first FLIP. So please correct me, if I did something wrong.

I am interested in your thoughts about how to solve this issue. Do you
think my approach is heading into the right direction or should we follow a
totally different one.

I am happy about any comment :)

Best regards,
