             Summary: KafkaConsumer should use partitionable state over union state if partition discovery is not active
                 Key: FLINK-10122
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FLINK-10122
             Project: Flink
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Kafka Connector
            Reporter: Stefan Richter
            Assignee: Stefan Richter
             Fix For: 1.7.0


KafkaConsumer store its offsets state always as union state. I think this is only required in the case that partition discovery is active. For jobs with a very high parallelism, the union state can lead to prohibitively expensive deployments. For example, a job with 2000 source and a total of 10MB checkpointed union state offsets state would have to ship ~ 2000 x 10MB = 20GB of state. With partitionable state, it would have to ship ~10MB.

For now, I would suggest to go back to partitionable state in case that partition discovery is not active. In the long run, I have some ideas for more efficient partitioning schemes that would also work for active discovery.
