Subject Re: Recommended number of partitions on each broker
Date Thu, 02 Mar 2017 17:01:35 GMT
We normally run over 1,000 partitions per broker, and I know of a major
company with 30+ kafka clusters that averages 1,100 partitions per broker
across all clusters.

So 300 shouldn't be an issue as long as the throughput per partition isn't
too high. Given that disk and cpu are so low, I'd guess this isn't the
issue.
