Subject Re: kafka_2.9.2- - Topic marked for deletion
Date Wed, 04 Nov 2015 06:54:07 GMT
Hi Avinash,

This is working as expected. Since delete topics is not enabled, they get
marked for deletion, but never get deleted. Once you enable topic
deletion (delete.topic.enable=true)
the topics marked get delete.

Once the topic is marked for deletion messages will still be available. It
is when the topic is actually deleted that messages can no longer be
consumed. However, in order for a topic to be safely deleted all
producers/consumers of that topic should be stopped. Not stopping the
clients can cause weird behavior especially when auto topic creation is

Thank you,
