Subject Generate watermarks per key in a KeyedStream
Date Wed, 08 Nov 2017 15:48:44 GMT

I'm working on implementing a use case wherein different physical devices
are sending events, and due to network/power issues, there can be a delay
in receiving events at Flink source. One of the operators within the flink
job is the Pattern operator, and there are certain patterns which are time
sensitive, so I'm using Event time characteristic. But the problem comes
when there are unpredictable delays in events from a particular device(s),
which causes those events to be dropped (as I cannot really define a static
bound to allow for lateness).

Since I'm using a KeyedStream, keyed on the source device ID, is there a
way to allow each CEP operator instance (one per key) to progress its time
based on the event time in the corresponding stream partition. Or in other
words, is there a way to generate watermarks per partition in a KeyedStream?
