Subject Re: Not able to run multiple consumer instances

Yes, a partition can be accessed by only a single thread at a time, so that
second consumer of yours, since it's in the same group, has nothing to do.
If you add more partitions your consumers would help each other consume all
messages out of that topic (roughly 50% of messages each).
If you were to assign the second consumer with a different group, each
consumer would consume all messages (independently of one another).

BTW, Kafka is not broadcasting anything, your consumers are pulling
messages out of Kafka :)
