Subject Re: Topic/Partition Assignment in streams application cluster
Date Sat, 06 Jan 2018 18:16:35 GMT
The assignment strategy cannot be configures in Kafka Streams atm.

How many partitions do you have in your topics? If I read in-between the
lines, it seems that all topics have just one partition? For this case,
it will be hard to scale out, as Kafka Streams scales via the number of
partitions... The maximum number of partitions of your input topics is a
limiting factor for horizontal scale out.
