Subject Re: Stream conversion
Date Fri, 05 Feb 2016 07:56:15 GMT
For example, I will do aggregate operations with other windows (n-window
aggregations) that are already outputted.
I tried your suggestion and used filesystem sink, outputted to HDFS.
 I got k files in HDFS directory where k is the number of parallelism (I
used single machine).
These files get bigger (new records are appended) as stream continues.
Because they are (outputted files) not closed and file size is changed
regularly, would this cause some problems while processing data with
dataset api or hadoop or another library?
