Subject Re: Flink Cluster setup

Hi,

Flink allocates the blob server at an ephemeral port, so it'll change every
time you start Flink.
However, the "blob.server.port" configuration [1] allows you to use a
predefined port, or even a port range.

If your Kafka topic has only one partition, only one of the 8 tasks will
read the data. Flink will not read the same data multiple times.
If the number of partitions is higher than the number of tasks, each task
will read multiple partitions.

If your data is evenly distributed among the partitions, you don't nede to
worry about that. As soon as you do a keyBy() operation, the data will be
shuffeled over the network, according to the key.
If you have unevenly distributed data, you can add the
dataStream.rebalance() call in the API.

Let me know if you have more questions.


Regards,
Robert
