Thanks, Bobby. Stateful bolt requires reliable processing guarantee, but in my case, it is abandoned for my specific requirement. Thus I tried to save the state myself in the bolt's close method, which did not work. The state was not saved. So how to store the state and when is close method called?

If you have state to store it is up to you to store that state in an external system, in a way that meets your topologies requirements. At least one vs at most once. In newer versions of storm the concept of stateful bolts was added. http://storm.apache.org/releases/1.0.3/State-checkpointing.html is the documentation for that feature. It still saves the state in an external system (that you can pick) but also helps to fix some of the complexity associated with checkpointing and restoring state in line with replay of failed messages. - Bobby On Friday, August 4, 2017, 12:45:17 AM CDT, ? ?? <wangchunc...@outlook.com> wrote: Hi, It is observed that the executor of a task changes to a different worker on a different supervisor. And the computation, which is similar to wordcount, stops and starts over. After several tests, I find that this is caused by the lost of the task state during executor change. So I wonder: 1. Why does the change happen? 2. When the change happen, does the executor use a new component(bolt) instance? How does the instance come into being? By constructor or deserialization? 3. In this case, how to persist the task state? ________________________________ wangchunc...@outlook.com
