Subject Re: RocksDB Windows / Flink 1.1.4 - requires Hadoop?
Date Fri, 23 Dec 2016 18:27:37 GMT
Hi Dave!

In 1.1.x, the default mode of RocksDB uses some Hadoop utilities,
regardless of the filesystem used. I think that was a design mistake and we
rectified that in the upcoming 1.2.x

For 1.1.4, I would use "enableFullyAsyncSnapchots()" on the RocksDB state
backend - that mode should also not depend on Hadoop utilities.

Best,
Stephan
