Subject Re: scaling a flink streaming application on a single node

Thank you for replying!

I am trying to do this on a single machine in fact. Since it has 64
cores, it would be interesting to look at the performance in that

Does it make sense if I run multiple TaskManagers on a single machine
if 64 slots are too many for a TaskManager?

My intention for the experiment at the moment is to try to scale the
application up on a single machine to its maximum before moving on to
run the experiment on multiple machines.

Thank you again!
