    Description

      In order to support dynamic scaling, it is necessary to sub-partition the key-value states of each operator. This sub-partitioning, which produces a set of key groups, allows to easily scale in and out Flink jobs by simply reassigning the different key groups to the new set of sub tasks. The idea of key groups is described in this design document [1].
