Subject Multiple instances of HL Consumer
Date Fri, 05 Jun 2015 14:11:56 GMT
I've a HL consumer receiving messages using four threads (four partitions). This is a stand-alone
Java client. For fail-safe reasons, I want to run another instance of the exact same Java
client in a different box.

Here are my questions:

> Can I keep the same consumer group name or it must be different for the 2nd instance?
> If same consumer group, will the 2nd client receive same set of messages again?
> In general what's the best practice to designing fail-safe clients?

Thanks
Sam
