Subject Re: storing last processed offset, recovery of failed message processing etc.
Date Mon, 09 Dec 2013 20:31:52 GMT
We use Zookeeper, as is standard with Kafka.

Our systems are idempotent, so we only store offsets when the message is
fully processed. If this means we occasionally replay a message due to some
corner-case, or simply a restart, it doesn't matter.
