Subject doubt regarding consumer rebalance exception.
Date Fri, 11 Apr 2014 11:03:05 GMT
Once i get this exception

ERROR consumer.ZookeeperConsumerConnector: [xxxxxxxxxx ], error during 
  kafka.common.ConsumerRebalanceFailedException: xxxxxxxxx can't 
rebalance after 4 retries

The consumer is not consuming any more messages. Is this the behaviour? 
is there any property in high level consumer through which i can say to 
consumer to keep retrying, until consumer gets the data. This message is 
not atually being thrown in high level consumer. This is just logged in 
the logger. If the consumer will not get data after this exception, 
shouldn't this be thrown at a place user can catch it and raise an alert?
