Subject how robust are file accesses?
Date Sat, 05 Dec 2015 19:05:29 GMT

Are files that kafka writes to the file system robust against abrupt termination?
Including fs meta data.
And assuming it's used with a journaling fs.
Or do I need ups and always shut down kafka gracefully to prevent data corruption?
I'm not afraid of losing data (have redundant servers), but I'm afraid of file corruption
that prevents kafka from starting without problems.

I'm asking for worst case of course, not was usually happens.
