Subject [External] Flink StreamingFileSink not ingesting to S3 when checkpointing is disabled
Date Tue, 28 May 2019 02:26:33 GMT
Hello everyone,

I want to use aws s3 as sink for a data stream in flink. I am using
StreamingFileSink class to create a sink.

I don't need checkpointing for my job, but when I disable checkpointing,
data is no longer written to S3.

case 1 : checkpointing enabled
When checkpointing is enabled, the data is successfully ingested to the
mentioned s3 path.

case 2 : checkpointing disabled
When checkpointing is disabled, the data is not written to s3.

I tried executing the job multiple times, but every time I got the same
result. I am facing this on local machine as well as on kubernetes cluster.

Following is a code I tried having bounded stream -

object FlinkTestJob {

  def main(args: Array[String]): Unit = {

    val env = StreamExecutionEnvironment.getExecutionEnvironment

    // with checkpointing enabled

    // Sinks
    val streamStrings: Seq[String] =
      Seq("test1", "test2", "test3", "test4", "test5", "test6",
"test7", "test8", "test9", "test10")

    val testStream = env.fromCollection(streamStrings)

    val rollingPolicy = new RollingPolicy[String, String] {

      override def shouldRollOnCheckpoint(partFileState:
PartFileInfo[String]): Boolean =
        partFileState.getSize > 1

      override def shouldRollOnEvent(
          partFileState: PartFileInfo[String],
          element: String): Boolean = true

      override def shouldRollOnProcessingTime(
          partFileState: PartFileInfo[String],
          currentTime: Long): Boolean = true

    val sink: StreamingFileSink[String] = StreamingFileSink
      .forRowFormat(new Path("s3a://testbucket/sink"), new


When I write to s3 using "writeAsText("s3a://testbucket/sink")" instead of
StreamingFileSink, it works perfectly fine regardless of whether or not
checkpointing is enabled.

Flink version : 1.8.0
I want to understand the relation between checkpointing and

- Thanks
