Subject Reverse Order of Messages when Run behind VPN
Date Tue, 06 Aug 2019 09:56:23 GMT

At remote locations, we often use Big IP F5 VPN client to connect to our
VPN and then do other activities.

Whilst on VPN, we tried connecting to our Kafka Service on GCP to test

It appears that there's always a network exception even with
request.timeout.ms set as 120s for producer/consumer. And when console
producer receives those exception, we hit "Return", and the consumer
received the messages in reverse order.

When we tried outside VPN, it appear to work without any tuning to default
request.timeout.ms. We can understand the latency whilst on VPN, but the
message ordering was quite confusing. Has anyone experienced the same
issue? I am not quite an expert in various network technologies, but it
almost seems that the batching of the packets and delivery were all mixed

Any help/suggestion is appreciated.
