Subject Re: Too Many Open Files

woah, it looks like you have 15,000 replicas per broker?

You can go into the directory you configured for kafka's log.dir and
see how many files you have there. Depending on your segment size and
retention policy, you could have hundreds of files per partition

Make sure you have at least that many file handles and then also add
handles for the client connections.

1 million file handles sound like a lot, but you are running lots of
partitions per broker...

We normally don't see more than maybe 4000 per broker and most
clusters have a lot fewer, so consider adding brokers and spreading
partitions around a bit.
