we currently have an issue with Flink, as it allocates many tasks to the
same task manager and as a result it overloads it. I reduced the amount
of task slots per task manager (keeping the CPU count) and added some
more servers but that did not help to distribute the load.
Is there some way to force Flink to distribute the load/tasks on a
standalone cluster? I saw that
https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FLINK-1003 would maybe provide
what we need, but that is currently not worked on as it seems.
