Subject Re: Difference between with and without state store cleanup streams startup
Date Fri, 31 Mar 2017 23:21:05 GMT
1. The whole log will be read.

2. It will read all the key-value pairs. However, the store will contain
only the latest record for each key, after state recovery finished.

Both both (1) and (2): note, that changelog topics are compacted, thus,
it will not read everything since you started your app, as log
compaction will remove old records that got "overwritten" with newer

3. The instance will hit the timeout and you will get an exception.

4. and 5. It depends. On a clean shutdown, Streams writes a checkpoint
file and thus knows the state of the store. Therefore, it does not need
to read the changelog to recover the store. On unclean shutdown (like
kill -9) the checkpoint file will be missing, and thus Streams will wipe
out the state and recreate it from scratch (thus, you don't need to call
.cleanup() manually)
