Show checkpoint start delay in checkpoint statistics

    XMLWordPrintableJSON

    Details

      Description

      One of the most important metrics is missing in the checkpoint stats: "start delay" (aka "barrier lag"), meaning the time it between when the checkpoint was triggered and when the barriers arrive at a task.

      That time is critical to identify if a checkpoint takes too long because of backpressure or other contention.

      You can implicitly calculate this by "end_to_end_time - sync_time - async_time", but it is much more obvious for users that something is up when this number is explicitly shown.
