Re: Size of Checkpoints increasing with time
Do you use incremental checkpoint ?
RocksDB is an append-only DB, so you will experience the steady increase
in state size until a compaction occurs and old values of keys are
However, the average state size should stabilize after a while, if the
load doesn't change.

We are using ValueState to maintain state. It is a pretty simple job
with a keyBy operator on a stream and the subsequent map operator
maintains state in a ValueState instance. The transaction load is in
billion transactions per day. However the amount of state per key is a
list of 18x6 long values which are constantly updated. We have about
20 million keys and transactions are uniformly distributed across
When the job starts the size of the checkpoints (Using RocksDB backed
by S3) is low (order of 500 MB). However, after 12 hours of operation
the checkpoint sizes have increased to about 4-5 GB. Time taken to
complete the checkpoint starts around 15-20 seconds and after 12 hours
reaches about a minute.
What is the reason behind the increasing size of checkpoints?
