Subject Precision on partitions
Date Tue, 04 Oct 2011 12:02:28 GMT
Hi,

one thing I'd like to have confirmed (or not) is the fact that a
partition is managed by a single broker.

If this is indeed the case, does this mean that to take full advantage
of additional brokers the number of partitions also needs to be
increased?

If a partition is not managed by a single broker, then how does the
consumer know how to order the messages coming from different brokers
but pertaining to the same partition?

Sorry for my newbieness.

Mathias.
