Subject Fwd: coordinator load + OffsetFetchRequest error = consumption failure
Date Thu, 21 Jun 2018 21:45:37 GMT
Hi Kafka users,

*tldr questions;*

*1. Is it normal or expected for the coordinator load state to last for 6
hours? Is this load time affected by log retention settings, message
production rate, or other parameters?*
*2. Do non-pykafka clients handle COORDINATOR_LOAD_IN_PROGRESS by consuming
only from the non-erroring partitions? Pykafka's insistence that all
partitions return successful OffsetFetchResponses can be a source of
consumption downtime.*
*3. Why does Kafka sometimes select a non-synced replica as the preferred
replica during coordinator loads? How can I reassign partition leaders to
replicas in the ISR?*
*4. Are all of these questions moot because I should just be using a newer
version of Kafka than 0.8.2.1?*


I'm using Kafka 0.8.2.1, running a topic with 200 partitions and RF=3, with
log retention set to about 1GB.

An unknown event caused the cluster to enter the "coordinator load" or
"group load" state. A few signals made this apparent: the pykafka-based
consumers began to fail
<https://github.com/Parsely/pykafka/blob/858554029830e15cfa6d15df002d1772672d8ee0/pykafka/simpleconsumer.py#L643>
during FetchOffsetRequests with error code 14 COORDINATOR_LOAD_IN_PROGRESS
for some subset of partitions. These errors were triggered when consuming
with a consumer group that had existed since before the coordinator load.
In broker logs, messages like this appeared:

[2018-05...] ERROR Controller 17 epoch 20 initiated state change for
partition [my.cool.topic,144] from OnlinePartition to OnlinePartition
failed (state.change.logger)
kafka.common.StateChangeFailedException: encountered error while electing
leader for partition [my.cool.topic,144] due to: Preferred replica 11 for
partition [my.cool.topic,144] is either not alive or not in the isr.
Current leader and ISR: [{"leader":12,"leader_epoch":7,"isr":[12,13]}].

For some reason, Kafka decided that replica 11 was the "preferred" replica
despite the fact that it was not in the ISR. To my knowledge, consumption
*could* continue uninterrupted from either replica 12 or 13 while 11
resynchronized - it's not clear why Kafka chose a non-synced replica as the
preferred leader.

The above-described behavior lasted for about 6 hours, during which the
pykafka fetch_offsets error made message consumption impossible. While the
coordinator load was still in progress, other consumer groups were able to
consume the topic without error. In fact, the eventual fix was to restart
the broken consumers with a new consumer_group name.

*Questions*

1. Is it normal or expected for the coordinator load state to last for 6
hours? Is this load time affected by log retention settings, message
production rate, or other parameters?
2. Do non-pykafka clients handle COORDINATOR_LOAD_IN_PROGRESS by consuming
only from the non-erroring partitions? Pykafka's insistence that all
partitions return successful OffsetFetchResponses can be a source of
consumption downtime.
3. Why does Kafka sometimes select a non-synced replica as the preferred
replica during coordinator loads? How can I reassign partition leaders to
replicas in the ISR?
4. Are all of these questions moot because I should just be using a newer
version of Kafka?

Thanks for your help, and please let me know if I can provide additional
information or answer additional questions.
