Hi All,

I would like to start a discussion around adding a unique id to all the parsed messages.  I feel there  was  a discussion around a similar topic but I am not sure as a community we agreed on a proposal. 

We could 
-use a random number generator like UUID but this might have performance implications
-use a kafka topic name + systemtime + Kafka message offset to generate a unique identifier
-use the input message to generate a hashcode

Any thoughts ?

(Attached email that had similar discussion for error indexing)
