Subject The motive to detach new consumer and zookeeper
Date Sat, 05 Dec 2015 09:07:02 GMT
Hi guys,

As we know, the new consumer of 0.9 kafka does not need to communicate with
What is the motive / rational behind this disign? I have some
guesses(correct me if i am wrong):

1. Reduce the complexity of consumer. It's hard to maintain the connections
and states of kafka servers and zookeeper servers.

2. Improve performance. Too many consumers querying and writting to
zookeeper will decrease the performance as a whole.
