Subject Re: Strategies for auto generating broker ID
Date Tue, 01 Oct 2013 14:08:12 GMT
Right. It is currently java integer. However, as per previous thread, it
seems possible to change it to a string. In that case, we can use instance
IDs, IP addresses, custom ID generators, etc.
How are you currently generating broker IDs from IP address? Chef script or
custom shell script?
