Subject Re: Failed job restart - flink on yarn
Date Tue, 05 Jul 2016 23:18:05 GMT
Thanks for the reply, It would be great to have the feature to restart a
failed job from the last checkpoint.


Is there a way to pass the initial set of partition-offsets to the
kafka-client ? In that case I can maintain a list of last processed offsets
from within my window operation (possibly store the offsets in some
database) and use that to bootstrap the kafka client upon restart.

I realize that I can probably reset the offsets for the consumer group from
some external program to the last fully processed offsets and restart the
job, just want to confirm if there is already a feature in the kafka-client.

Thanks,
Prabhu
