Subject Re: Indefinite growth of FetchRequestPurgatory
Date Mon, 03 Nov 2014 15:45:48 GMT
Hi Andras,

Could you try 0.8.2-beta and see if this issue comes out again? We fixed a
couple of the purgatory issues (e.g. KAFKA-1616
<https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/KAFKA-1616>) in 0.8.2, but I do not
remember any of them will cause OOM.
