Subject Re: How does a new broker decide the partitions of the topic?
Date Fri, 28 Dec 2012 04:08:48 GMT
Here is my understanding, but may be wrong.

Every topic in one broker has num.partitions partitions if we only set

When a new broker is added, if there is topic data folder under kafka-logs
then the broker will register num.partitions of this topic in zk, else the
broker doesn't know which topic should be registered.
If no brokers register the topic(topic data folder is not existed in any
broker), consumer will fall in bootstrap, assuming each broker has 1
The broker will register num.partitions of this topic in zk, after it
receive this topic message .

If only a few brokers haven't register the topic in zk, I think these
brokers may not actually work for this topic.

Please correct me if I am wrong.
