Flink CEP Watermark Exception

Austin Cawley-Edwards
Hi there,

We have a streaming application that uses CEP processing but are getting this error fairly frequently after a checkpoint fails, though not sure if it is related. We have implemented both  `hashCode` and `equals()` using `Objects.hash(...properties)` and basic equality, respectively. Has anyone seen this before using CEP?

Here is  the full exception:

Following up, we are using Flink 1.5.0 and Flink-CEP 2.11.

Thanks,

Re: Flink CEP Watermark Exception

Hi Austin,

Could you elaborate a bit more what do you mean by "after a checkpoint fails", what is the reason why checkpoint fails? Would it be possible for you to prepare some reproducible example for that problem? Finally, I would also recommend trying out Flink 1.6.x, as we reworked the underlying structure for CEP - SharedBuffer.

Best,

Dawid

Re: Flink CEP Watermark Exception

Austin Cawley-Edwards
Hi Dawid,

Thank you for your reply. I'm out for the next few days, so I hope you don't mind me cc'ing my team in here. We all really appreciate you and the rest of the people monitoring the mailing list. 


We've only seen this SharedBuffer problem in production, after sending around 20 GB of data through. In the Flink UI, we see the checkpoint status as:

Checkpoint failed: Checkpoint Coordinator is suspending.

It then tries to restore the last previously succeeded checkpoint, but cannot and throws the SharedBuffer exception. Our state size is around 200MB when it fails.

Unfortunately, the platform we are running our cluster on only supports up to Flink 1.5. We will continue trying to find a reproducible example for you. I have found a few other people with a similar problem (attached at the bottom), but none seem to have been resolved. 

Our CEP setup looks generally like this:
Pattern<AlertEvent, ?> pattern = Pattern.<AlertEvent>begin("alertOne")
.where(new SimpleCondition<Event>() {
@Override
public boolean filter(AlertEvent event) {
return event.level > 0;
}
})
.next("alertTwo").subtype(AlertEvent.class)
.where(new IterativeCondition<SubEvent>() {
@Override
public boolean filter(AlertEvent subEvent,
Context<AlertEvent> ctx) throws Exception {
double surprisePercent = subEvent.surprise();

Iterable<AlertEvent> previousEvents
= ctx.getEventsForPattern("alertOne");
for (AlertEvent prevEvent : previousEvents) {
double prevSurprisePercent = prevEvent.surprise();
if (prevSurprisePercent > surprisePercent) {
return false;
}
}
return true;
}
})
.next("alertThree").subtype(AlertEvent.class)
.where(new IterativeCondition<SubEvent>() {
@Override
public boolean filter(AlertEvent subEvent,
Context<AlertEvent> ctx) throws Exception {
double surprisePercent = subEvent.surprise();

Iterable<AlertEvent> previousEvents =
ctx.getEventsForPattern("alertTwo");
for (AlertEvent prevEvent : previousEvents) {
double prevSurprisePercent = prevEvent.surprise();
if (prevSurprisePercent > surprisePercent) {
return false;
}
}
return true;
}});

PatternStream<AlertEvent> alertPatternStream =
CEP.pattern(alertEvents, pattern);
DataStream<Alert> confirmedAlerts = alertPatternStream
.select(new PatternSelectFunction<AlertEvent, Alert> {
private static final long serialVersionUID = 1L;
@Override
public Alert select(Map<String, List<AlertEvent>> patternIn) {
List<AlertEvent> alertEventList = new ArrayList<>();
// Create an alert composed of three escalating events
alertEventList.add(patternIn.get("alertOne").get(0));
alertEventList.add(patternIn.get("alertTwo").get(0));
alertEventList.add(patternIn.get("alertThree").get(0));
Alert confirmedAlert = new Alert(alertEventList);
return confirmedAlert;
}
})
.uid("confirmedAlerts")
.returns(Alert.class)
.keyBy("id");

Once again thank you,
Austin

Re: Flink CEP Watermark Exception

Dawid Wysakowicz-2

Hi Austin,

Could you provide jobmanagers and taksmanagers logs for a failed run? The exception you've posted is thrown during processing messages, rather than during restoring, but you said it failed to restore checkpoint, how come it processes messages? Could you also describe exact conditions step by step when the "IllegalStateException: Could not find previous entry with key" happens?

The first two issues regarding CEP you've linked concern very old Flink version (1.0.3), CEP library was heavily reworked since then and I would not look for any similarities in those cases.

Best,

Dawid

Re: Flink CEP Watermark Exception

Austin Cawley-Edwards
Hi Dawid,

Just back in the office. The platform we run on recently announced Flink 1.6.0 support, so we upgraded and haven't seen this problem arise again yet! We believe it could have been the `equals` method falsely matching different records in rare instances, though the upgrade to Flink 1.6.0 seemed to minimize those instances. 

Thank you for your help,
Austin

Hi Austin,

Could you elaborate a bit more what do you mean by "after a checkpoint fails", what is the reason why checkpoint fails? Would it be possible for you to prepare some reproducible example for that problem? Finally, I would also recommend trying out Flink 1.6.x, as we reworked the underlying structure for CEP - SharedBuffer.

Best,

Dawid

Following up, we are using Flink 1.5.0 and Flink-CEP 2.11.

Hi there,

We have a streaming application that uses CEP processing but are getting this error fairly frequently after a checkpoint fails, though not sure if it is related. We have implemented both  `hashCode` and `equals()` using `Objects.hash(...properties)` and basic equality, respectively. Has anyone seen this before using CEP?

Here is  the full exception:
