Subject Re: 90 open file handles for one segment
Date Tue, 11 Sep 2018 20:04:04 GMT

I am seeing similar behavior with kafka 1.1.0 with 80 copies of the same
file being open. I am getting up to ~500,000 open files on each broker with
it dying around 600,000. I have yet to find any documentation saying how
many open files kafka should have per topic/partition. The only
documentation I have seen is having the limit set to at least 100,000 which
we are both well past.

java.io.IOException: Too many open files

    Using one broker as a study I discovered There are ~13k log file

    segments/indices in the Kafka data dir discovered like:

    admin@kafka-1:/kafka/logs$ find . -type f | wc -l


     I've also noticed that a single segment file is open in 90 different


    admin@kafka-1:/kafka/logs$ sudo lsof | grep

    "/site.time.tracking-6/00000000000000000297.log" | wc -l


    This is about 1 per broker thread running!  Extrapolating this nearly

    up to 1.3mm, or the 800k I'm seeing.  Something must be grossly

    mis-configured here.  Why are the same segments being opened so many
