Subject Re: How kafka assign partition to stream
Date Mon, 10 Mar 2014 17:36:30 GMT
Hi Yonghui,

In 0.8 the load balance logic in consumers is based on range partitioning
with consumer-id as {consumer-1-stream-1, consumer-1-stream-2, ...
consumer-1-stream-10, consumer-2-stream-1, ...} and partitions are assigned
to this list in round robin. So yes, this behavior is expected. If you are
going to live with 20 partitions in the near future I would recommend you
to reduce the number of partitions per machine to 5.

To your second question the answer is Yes, the rebalance logic will be
triggered again (assuming consumer 1 is dead) but this time with consumer
list {consumer-2-stream-1, ...}, so for your case if just say the first one
is dead only the third one will get data, the forth one may still get zero
