Previously, I noticed that the data in the sorter on the disk was particularly large. I initially thought it was a disk performance issue causing the sorter not to output events, so I increased the threshold for the sorter to store data on the disk. Now the sorter sorts entirely in memory, but still no kv events are output, only a few resolved events are output sporadically.

You need to wait for the incremental scan to complete before it starts outputting data to the downstream.

The data flow should be puller->sorter->mounter->sink, it shouldn’t stop outputting at the sorter stage.

Excuse me, was the final output generated?
