Hi Derek - could you explain where does the "3000 connections" number come from, i.e. how did you measure it? It's weird that 5-6 workers would use 3000 connections.
We are new to Beam and need some help.
We are working on a flow to ingest events and writes the aggregated
counts to a database. The input rate is rather low (~2000 message per
sec), but the processing is relatively heavy, that we need to scale out
to 5~6 nodes. The output (via JDBC) is aggregated, so the volume is also
low. But because of the number of workers, it keeps 3000 connections to
the database and it keeps hitting the database connection limits.
Is there a way that we can reduce the concurrency only at the output
stage? (In Spark we would have done a repartition/coalesce).
And, if it matters, we are using Apache Beam 2.2 via Scio, on Google
Thank you in advance!
