Subject Re: Counting elements that appear "behind" the watermark
Date Tue, 31 Jul 2018 01:20:50 GMT
Hi Julio,

If I understand correctly, you want to adjust your watermarks automatically?
It is true that there are no direct ways to get metric from the
AssignerWithPeriodicWatermarks. Adding ProcessFunction before
assignTimestampsAndWatermarks seems a solution. In the ProcessFunction, you
can count the late number and send the number to the downstream
assignTimestampsAndWatermarks to adjust watermarks.

Best, Hequn
