Subject [jira] [Commented] (GEARPUMP-32) Minimum clock of source Tasks maybe inaccurate
Date Thu, 18 Aug 2016 01:03:20 GMT


ASF GitHub Bot commented on GEARPUMP-32:

Github user manuzhang commented on the issue:
    Event time process is not specific to Kafka. When users decode messages from Kafka, they
are required to return a watermark as well.

> Source tasks have not any upstreamClocks. So, startClock is the minimum of pending clocks
when recover happen.
> eg below:
> source task1: timeStamp:15,not ACK, minClockValue maybe is 15(<= 15).
> source task2: timeStamp:10,ACKed, minClockValue maybe is Long.MaxValue
> when recover happen,startClock maybe is 15. where is the data between 10 to 15 at task2?

> More context on this issue:
> In Gearpump, we maintain a global minimum clock tracked from a message's timestamp across
all tasks. It means messages with timestamp before this clock have all been processed. An
application will restart from this value on failure, and thus at-least-once message delivery
could be guaranteed. 
> The global minimum clock is the lower bound of all the Tasks' minimum clocks. 
> For a task, the minimum clock is the lower of 
> # upstream minimum clock
> # a. the minimum timestamp of unacked messages
>    b. Long.MaxValue if all messages have been acked.
> Note that 2.b allows the global minimum clock to progress and it is almost safe since
the clock is also bounded by the upstream minimum clock. I said "almost safe" because a source
task has no upstream but we assume the upstream minimum clock is Long.MaxValue. Thus, the
scenario described by Zhu Yueqian could happen and breaks at-least-once guarantee.
