Apache Flink - InvalidPathException: Nul character not allowed

Explorer

Hello,

 

I am running Flink 1.14.4 with 3 jobs running in it. JVM: openjdk version "1.8.0_312". All jobs are running without any issues (at least not obviously noticed) however, I see the below exception in the log. Im not able to understand the reason for the exception. Not sure what is the issue.

 

Appreciate any help on this.

 

Exception: java.nio.file.InvalidPathException: Nul character not allowed (full stack trace below)

@spserd ,

 

Do these error appear only once in the logs or are they recurring?

What's the command line you used to run the job?

 

Cheers,

André

1. The error is recurring in the logs.

2. To start/stop Flink, I use 'service flink-jobmanager start/stop'. 

3. To start the Flink job, I use: $FLINK_HOME/bin/flink run -d /opt/flink-jobs/lib/job1.jar --pathToPropertyFile /opt/flink-jobs/conf/job1.properties

4. To cancel the Flink job, I get the ID from 'flink list' command and I use: $FLINK_HOME/bin/flink cancel <ID>

 

Please let me know if you need anything.

 

Appreciate your help on this.

 

Thanks,

Prabu.

Not sure what's going on. What's your job doing?

Hi @araujo,

 

My apologies for coming back late.

 

The job reads from 2 Kafka sources and send the data to Kinesis stream (sink).

 

Thanks,

Prabu.
