Subject log compaction v log rotation - best of the two worlds
Date Wed, 21 Mar 2018 09:06:31 GMT
I've been recently exploring log handling in kafka and I wonder if/how can I mixed log compaction
with log rotation.
A little background first:
I have an application that uses kafka topics as a backend for event sourcing. Messages represents
change of state of my 'resources'. Each resource has UID that is also used as a key for the
My resources have a lifecycle and when their life ends I don't need them anymore and there
is no point in keeping their history. Having said that I thought that best choice for me will
be log compaction with tombstone feature but I also would like to have a possibility to keep
history of changes for the resources(only until they die).
With those requirements I'd love to have a possibility to use tombstone feature for log rotation
but I guess it ain't working like that.

Does anyone here had similar requirements and solve that somehow ?
