Subject Noobie question about consumers and ordering of messages
Date Fri, 12 Jun 2015 22:31:13 GMT
So I just realized that when creating multiple partitions for a topic, it
is the responsibility of the producer and the consumer to  decide where to
put data.

So if I am a consumer, how do I know what partition to read data from?
What if the producer only put data in 1 partition out of 50.

And so there isn't any order, here, right? Only order per partition, but
there is no concept of consuming messages in the order they were produced,

Thanks. Just struggling on the practical aspects now that I've moved past
some of the administration tasks.
