[jira] [Created] (FLINK-10413) requestPartitionState messages overwhelms JM RPC main thread
Zhu Zhu created FLINK-10413:
Summary: requestPartitionState messages overwhelms JM RPC main thread
Issue Type: Bug
Components: Distributed Coordination
Affects Versions: 1.7.0
Reporter: Zhu Zhu
We tried to benchmark the job scheduling performance with a 2000x2000 ALL-to-ALL streaming(EAGER) job. The input data is empty so the tasks finishes soon after started.
In this case we see slow RPC responses and TM/RM heartbeats to JM will finally timeout.
We find ~2,000,000 requestPartitionState messages triggered by
triggerPartitionProducerStateCheck in a short time, which overwhelms JM RPC main thread. This is due to downstream tasks can be started earlier than upstream tasks in EAGER scheduling.
We's suggest no partition producer state check to avoid this issue. The task can just keep waiting for a while and retrying if the partition does not exist. There are two cases when the partition does not exist:
# the partition is not started yet
# the partition is failed
In case 1, retry works. In case 2, a task failover will soon happen and cancel the downstream tasks as well.
