[jira] [Created] (FLINK-9789) Watermark metrics for an operator&task shadow each other
Chesnay Schepler created FLINK-9789:
Summary: Watermark metrics for an operator&task shadow each other
Issue Type: Bug
Affects Versions: 1.5.1, 1.6.0
Reporter: Chesnay Schepler
Assignee: Chesnay Schepler
In FLINK-4812 we reworked the watermark metrics to be exposed for each operator.
In FLINK-9467 we made further modifications to also expose these metrics again for tasks.
This works by re-using the input watermark gauge for the first operator in the task chain, and the output watermark gauge for the last operator in the task chain. This means that a single metric is registered multiple times.
Unfortunately, the metric system assumes metric objects to be unique, as can be seen in virtually all reporter implementations as well as the MetricQueryService.
As a result the watermark metrics override each other in the reporter, causing only one to be reported, whichever was registered last.
FLINK-4812 was implemented for 1.5.1, so this would be a regression.
