Subject per-topic configuration names... unit suffix ?
Date Thu, 29 Jan 2015 22:38:45 GMT
Hi all,

I am reading about the per-topic configs<http://kafka.apache.org/documentation.html#topic-config>
and the unit suffixes on a couple don't seem to match to the global/server ones.


retention.ms => log.retention.minutes
segment.ms => log.roll.hours

Can someone clear this up?

Is the per-topic key really 'ms'? If so, are the units actually in milliseconds?

I would expect the units to match the global, and therefore I would expect the key suffix
to match. Maybe this is just a documentation error?
