Thomas Weise commented on APEXMALHAR-2244:

How will the spillable DS know which time bucket to look for a given key in 
(get)? That's so that we don't look into multiple time buckets since it is not 
necessary in this case and the number of time buckets can also be high.

> The spillable data structures currently does not make any assumption about 
> the key that is used in Managed State, and as a result, it uses 
> ManagedStateImpl to interface with Managed State and uses time buckets that 
> are based on the apex window id. But for WindowedStorage used by 
> WindowedOperator, the key to the storage is a window, which is event time 
> based. Using the default ManagedStateImpl would be very inefficient for event 
> time based keys, since it would write data that would belong to the same 
> window to different time buckets.
> On a high level, the below summarizes roughly what needs to be done:
> 1. a way to tell the spillable data structures to use the 
> ManagedTimeUnifiedStateImpl
> 2. a way to tell the spillable data structures how to extract the timestamp 
> from the key. Note that in the case of WindowedOperator, the timestamp should 
> be the end timestamp of the window (beginTimeMillis + durationMillis), not 
> the begin timestamp.
> 3. a way to tell the spillable data structures how to assign the time bucket 
> given that timestamp
> 4. only purge a time bucket when all keys that belong to that time bucket are 
> removed and the apex window id of the first window in which the keys are all 
> removed has been committed
