Subject Re: Setup GC log rotate policy for kafka broker servers
Date Sun, 02 Dec 2018 08:45:54 GMT
Hi Parth,

We need to pass JVM system properties to rotate gc logs. These props added
in Kafka 0.11.release.
For releases before 0.11, we need to add these JVM props. Broker restart is
required for changes to take effect.
