Subject Re: Question about DataStream serialization
Date Tue, 08 Dec 2015 07:41:40 GMT
Hi Radu,

you are right. The open() method is called for each parallel instance of
a rich function. Thus, if all instanced use the same code, you might
read the same data multiple times.

The easiest was to distinguish different instanced within open() is to
user the RuntimeContext. If offers two methods  "int
getNumberOfParallelSubtasks()" and "int getIndexOfThisSubtask()" that
you can use to compute your own partitioning within open().

For example (just a sketch):

@Override
public void open(Configuration parameters) throws Exception {
  RuntimeContext context = super.getRuntimeContext();
  int dop = context.getNumberOfParallelSubtasks();
  int idx = context.getIndexOfThisSubtask();

  // open file
  // get size of file in bytes

  // seek to partition #idx:
  long seek = fileSize * idx / dop;

  // read "fileSize/dop" bytes
}

Hope this helps.

-Matthias
