Subject Re: Problem with Kafka Consumer

Hi Simone,

I suppose that you use messageStream.keyBy(…).window(…) right? .windowAll() is not applicable
to keyedStreams.

Some follow up questions are:

In your logs, do you see any error messages? 
What does your RowToQuery() sink do? Can it be that it blocks and the back pressure makes
all the pipeline stall?
To check that, you can: 
	1) check the webui for backpressure metrics
 	2) replace your sink with a dummy one that just prints whatever it receives
	3) or even put a flatmap after reading from Kafka (before the keyBy()) that prints the elements
before sending 
		them downstream, so that you know if the consumer keeps on reading.

Let us know what is the result for the previous.
