Subject Consuming "backwards"?
Date Fri, 06 Dec 2013 14:22:23 GMT
Hi,

Does Kafka offer a way to consume messages in batches, but "from the end"?

This would be valuable to have in all systems where the most recent data is
a lot more important than older data, such as performance metrics, and
maybe even logs....maybe also trading/financial data, and such.

Any chance of this sort of functionality ever making it into Kafka, or is
this simply not implementable due to some underlying assumptions, or data
structures, or ... ?

Thanks,
Otis
