zhijiang created FLINK-10653:

             Summary: Propose of external shuffle service for batch jobs
                 Key: FLINK-10653
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FLINK-10653
             Project: Flink
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: Network
    Affects Versions: 2.0.0
            Reporter: zhijiang
            Assignee: zhijiang

The network shuffle behavior for batch jobs in Flink can be improved in two dimensions:
 * *ShuffleService:* Shuffle service is used for transporting upstream’s outputs to the
downstream side. The {{TaskExecutor}} takes the role of shuffle service unified for both
stream and batch jobs currently.

 * The output is consumable only when the upstream task finishes for blocking mode. The {{TaskExecutor}} can
not exit to release resources even though there are no tasks running, because it should responsible
for transferring data via shuffle service. This has the bad effects in resource dynamic or
sensitive scenarios.

 * *ResultPartition:* there are two types of subpartitions currently for the outputs. The
{{PipelinedSubPartition}} is used for stream jobs and the {{SpillableSubpartition}} is used
for batch jobs in blocking mode.

 * The {{SpillableSubpartition}} generates one separate persistent file for every subpartition.
This partition-hash mode is not IO friendly for special scenarios, i.e. large number of subpartitions
with little data in every subpartition. And it may exceed the inode limits for large scale
 * The persistent files would be deleted immediately after reading to transport layer. If
the downstream task fails during consumption, all the related upstream tasks have to be restarted
to reproduce the outputs.


We propose three overall changes:
 * Mechanism and setting of external shuffle service
 * Output sort&merge persistent files for new {{ResultPartitionType}}
 * Delete persistent output files via notification or ttl


The detail design doc would be submitted later.
