>  on the user@f.a.o mailing list and analyzed the situation.
> Scenario:
> - A program that reads from Kafka and computes counts in a keyed 15 minute 
> tumbling window.  StateBackend is RocksDB and checkpointing is enabled.
> {code}
> keyBy(0)
>         .timeWindow(Time.of(window_size, TimeUnit.MINUTES))
>         .allowedLateness(Time.of(late_by, TimeUnit.SECONDS))
>         .reduce(new ReduceFunction(), new WindowFunction())
> {code}
> - At some point HDFS went into a safe mode due to NameNode issues
> - The following exception was thrown
> {code}
> org.apache.hadoop.ipc.RemoteException(org.apache.hadoop.ipc.StandbyException):
>  Operation category WRITE is not supported in state standby. Visit 
> https://s.apache.org/sbnn-error

> {code}
> - The pipeline came back after a few restarts and checkpoint failures, after 
> the HDFS issues were resolved.
> - It was evident that operator state was lost. Either it was the Kafka 
> consumer that kept on advancing it's offset between a start and the next 
> checkpoint failure (a minute's worth) or the the operator that had partial 
> aggregates was lost. 
> The user did some in-depth analysis (see [mail 
> thread|https://lists.apache.org/thread.html/9dc9b719cf8449067ad01114fedb75d1beac7b4dff171acdcc24903d@%3Cuser.flink.apache.org%3E])
>  and might have (according to [~aljoscha]) identified the problem.
> [~stefanrichte...@gmail.com], can you have a look at this issue and check if 
> it is relevant?
