public interface WatermarkPolicy
Watermarkgiven the event timestamps as they occur for a single input stream. Typically the watermark will be advanced with a
fixed lagbehind the top observed timestamp so far.
This object is used by source processors to determine the current watermark. The processor may choose to create several of these objects to track each source partition separately and each processor will also have their own instance. The implementation does not need to be thread-safe.
Modifier and Type Method Description
getCurrentWatermark()Called to get the current watermark in the absence of an observed event.
limitingLag(long lag)Maintains a watermark that lags behind the top observed timestamp by the given amount.
reportEvent(long timestamp)Called to report the observation of an event with the given timestamp.
long reportEvent(long timestamp)Called to report the observation of an event with the given timestamp. Returns the watermark that should be (or have been) emitted before the event.
If the returned value is greater than the event's timestamp it means that the event should be dropped.
timestamp- event's timestamp
- the watermark value. May be
Long.MIN_VALUEif there is insufficient information to determine any watermark (e.g., no events observed)
long getCurrentWatermark()Called to get the current watermark in the absence of an observed event. The watermark may advance based just on the passage of time.
Maintains a watermark that lags behind the top observed timestamp by the given amount.
Note: if Jet stops receiving events at some point (e.g., at the end of a business day), the watermark will stop advancing and stay behind the most recent events. Jet will not output the results of aggregating these events until it starts receiving events again (e.g., at the start of the next business day).
lag- the desired difference between the top observed timestamp and the watermark
