Github user StephanEwen commented on the issue:

    @greghogan I am quite deep into some large scale deployment and scalability issues right
now. I plan to write a mail to the mailing list on that, actually.
    If possible, I'd like to defer this for a bit. I hope to find some time between the years
to go over pull request and do catching up with these threads.

>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FLINK-4705
>             Project: Flink
>          Issue Type: Sub-task
>          Components: Local Runtime
>    Affects Versions: 1.2.0
>            Reporter: Greg Hogan
>            Assignee: Greg Hogan
> The {{NormalizedKeySorter}} sorts on the concatenation of (potentially partial) keys
plus an 8-byte pointer to the record. After sorting each pointer must be dereferenced, which
is not cache friendly.
> The {{FixedLengthRecordSorter}} sorts on the concatentation of full keys followed by
the remainder of the record. The records can then be deserialized in sequence.
> Instrumenting the {{FixedLengthRecordSorter}} requires implementing the comparator methods
{{writereadWithKeyNormalization}} and {{readWithKeyNormalization}}.
> Testing {{JaccardIndex}} on an m4.16xlarge the scale 18 runtime dropped from 71.8 to
68.8 s (4.3% faster) and the scale 20 runtime dropped from 546.1 to 501.8 s (8.8% faster).
