Re: [DISCUSS] Flink Cluster Overview Dashboard Improvement Proposal
Hi everyone, thx for all the comments and feedback. Let me address
@Till: yes, for the start my plan would be to just touch the
- smaller icons on increasing server counts: yes, thats also something i
already thought about. will keep it in mind when realizing the first
- about locality: i searched quickly through the docs, but i could not
find anything regarding flink featuring rack awareness. Is this something
already implemented? If not, i think this will bloat the size of this
initial proposal. If its somewhere already included, we could implement it
@Zhijiang:the focus of this redesign was not yet including the job list in
the lower half of the overview. as part of the redesign we can also think
about optimising this list though, and removing unnecessary columns is
usually the most easy thing to do. we can maybe create a separate ticket
for this as well and discuss this issue there, to not bloat the initial
discussion with too much topics.
- Agreed that it might make sense to also show this on job level. Since
these metrics are probably gonna be introduced later only anyways, we can
discuss this maybe then separately after FLINK-9050
<https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FLINK-9050> (linked the wrong
ticket in my initial mail) is done.
- Rewriting the whole thing while doing this also came to my mind. What
i would like to do anyways (even if we stick for now to A1) is to remove
bower as a package manager (since its deprecated) and update bootstrap to
V4. I will check what the additional effort is to move to React/Redux.
We're working with this here at work as well, so implementing at least a
first MVP might be feasible as well, before getting to deep into A1
specifics. But that basically means that you guys are open to change the
underlying web/JS technology, yeah?
