Joep Rottinghuis commented on YARN-3949:
----------------------------------------

I think a simple write and separate flush call as in the current api design us 
a nice clean and functional approach.
Any implementation can cache, but should flush any buffers when instructed to 
do so.

Even in your case 3, some timer is needed, otherwise a long pause in writes 
causes the last lower priority writes to not be flushed.



> ensure timely flush of timeline writes

> Currently flushing of timeline writes is not really handled. For example, 
> {{HBaseTimelineWriterImpl}} relies on HBase's {{BufferedMutator}} to batch 
> and write puts asynchronously. However, {{BufferedMutator}} may not flush 
> them to HBase unless the internal buffer fills up.
> We do need a flush functionality first to ensure that data are written in a 
> reasonably timely manner, and to be able to ensure some critical writes are 
> done synchronously (e.g. key lifecycle events).
