Module Description

Flink’s core is a streaming dataflow engine that provides data distribution, communication, and fault tolerance for distributed computations over data streams.


What flink affects

  • Configuration files and directories (created and written to)
  • Package/service/configuration files for Flink
  • Listened-to ports

Setup Requirements

This module expects that the system already has a working java installation.

Beginning with flink

To have Puppet install Flink with the default parameters, declare the flink class:

class { 'flink': }

You can customize parameters when declaring the flink class. For instance, this declaration installs Flink by downloading a tarball instead of instead of using a package.

class { '::flink':
  archive_source => '',
  install_method => 'archive',


This module currently only install a all in one version.
