Subject Re: Watermark for each key?
Date Wed, 24 Apr 2019 17:58:18 GMT
Thanks Till

What about this workaround. 
If I after the watermark assignment split the stream in elements that fits in the watermark
(s1) and those that don’t (s2). The s1 I process with the table api with a window aggregate
using watermark and s2 I handle with an unbounded non-windows aggregate with IdleStateRentionTime
so state are removed when my devices are up to date again. I then merge the two outputs and
By doing this I handle 99% as standard and only keeping state for the late data. 

Make sense? And would it work?

each device to calculate some statistics, but for windows aggregate functions to work we need
to assign a watermark. This watermark is general for all devices. We can set allow latency,
but we can't set it to months.
