Subject Kafka DNS Caching in AWS
Date Wed, 03 Aug 2016 14:22:53 GMT
Hello –
We are planning to use Kafka as Event Store in a system which is being built using event sourcing
design approach.
Here is how we deployed the cluster in AWS to verify HA in the cloud (in our POC we only had
1 topic with 1 partition and 3 replication factor) -
1)    3 ZK servers running in different AZs (managed by Auto Scaling Group)
2)    3 Kafka brokers EC2 running in different AZs (managed by Auto Scaling Group)
3)    Kafka logs are stored in EBS volumes
4)    A type addresses are defined for all ZK servers & Kafka brokers in Route53
EC2 instance registers its IP for corresponding A type address (in Route53) on startup
But due a bug in ZKClient used by Kafka broker which caches ZK IP forever, I don’t see any
other option other than bouncing all brokers.
One of the Netflix presentation (following links) mentions about the issue as well as couple
of ZK JIRA defects but I haven’t found any concrete solution yet.
I would really appreciate any help in this regard.
