Subject [jira] [Created] (FLINK-4512) Add option for persistent checkpoints
Date Fri, 26 Aug 2016 14:49:20 GMT
Ufuk Celebi created FLINK-4512:

             Summary: Add option for persistent checkpoints
                 Key: FLINK-4512
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FLINK-4512
             Project: Flink
          Issue Type: Sub-task
          Components: State Backends, Checkpointing
            Reporter: Ufuk Celebi

Allow periodic checkpoints to be persisted by writing out their meta data. This is what we
currently do for savepoints, but in the future checkpoints and savepoints are likely to diverge
with respect to guarantees they give for updatability, etc.

This means that the difference between persistent checkpoints and savepoints in the long term
will be that persistent checkpoints can only be restored with the same job settings (like
parallelism, etc.)

Regular and persisted checkpoints should behave differently with respect to disposal in *globally*
terminal job states (FINISHED, CANCELLED, FAILED): regular checkpoints are cleaned up in all
of these cases whereas persistent checkpoints only on FINISHED. Maybe with the option to customize
behaviour on CANCELLED or FAILED.
