Subject Questions reg. Kafka apis and proxy
Date Wed, 09 Dec 2015 08:52:22 GMT

We are considering hosting Kafka as a service in our company (with multiple
clusters and a common interface) . We have the following questions with
regards to hosting Kafka as a service:

- The recommended Kafka clients and their api have changed since the last 2
releases - producer in 0.8.2 and consumer in 0.9. Are the apis considered
finalized with 0.9 or will there be any change in the apis that might come
in the future?
- Also, currently the client library requires the metadata-broker-list -
meaning that the clients have to know which Kafka cluster they need to
connect to. Is there any well-supported TCP layer proxy for it? (not the
Application layer REST-proxy as it will be used for the higher scale -
Does anyone have a similar setup? Could you share your opinions?
