Subject Re: Frequent Full GC's in case of FSStateBackend
Date Thu, 09 Mar 2017 02:01:37 GMT
Hi All

I am also seeing issues with FsStateBackend as it stalls coz of full gc. We
have very large state,
Does this mean the below doc should not claim that FsStateBackend is
encouraged for large state.

https://ci.apache.org/projects/flink/flink-docs-release-1.2/ops/state_backends.html#the-fsstatebackend

Regards
Sai
