Subject Kafka elastic no downtime scalability
Date Fri, 13 Mar 2015 12:43:09 GMT
Hello Apache Kafka community,

On Apache Kafka website home page http://kafka.apache.org/ it is stated
that Kafka "can be elastically and transparently expanded without downtime."
Is that really true? More specifically, can one just add one more broker,
have another partition added for the topic, have new broker assigned to be
the leader for new partition, have producers correctly write to the new
partition, and consumers read from it, with no broker, consumer or producer
downtime, no data loss, no manual action to move data from existing
partitions to new partition?

Kind regards,
Stevo Slavic.
