- StreamExecutionEnvironment.enable_changelog_state_backend(enabled: bool) pyflink.datastream.stream_execution_environment.StreamExecutionEnvironment [source]#
Enable the change log for current state backend. This change log allows operators to persist state changes in a very fine-grained manner. Currently, the change log only applies to keyed state, so non-keyed operator state and channel state are persisted as usual. The ‘state’ here refers to ‘keyed state’. Details are as follows:
Stateful operators write the state changes to that log (logging the state), in addition to applying them to the state tables in RocksDB or the in-mem Hashtable.
An operator can acknowledge a checkpoint as soon as the changes in the log have reached the durable checkpoint storage.
The state tables are persisted periodically, independent of the checkpoints. We call this the materialization of the state on the checkpoint storage.
Once the state is materialized on checkpoint storage, the state changelog can be truncated to the corresponding point.
It establish a way to drastically reduce the checkpoint interval for streaming applications across state backends. For more details please check the FLIP-158.
If this method is not called explicitly, it means no preference for enabling the change log. Configs for change log enabling will override in different config levels (job/local/cluster).
enabled – True if enable the change log for state backend explicitly, otherwise disable the change log.
