Subject Re: Low Level Kafka Consumer for Spark
Date Tue, 05 Aug 2014 09:14:36 GMT
Thanks Jonathan,

Yes, till non-ZK based offset management is available in Kafka, I need to
maintain the offset in ZK. And yes, both cases explicit commit is
necessary. I modified the Low Level Kafka Spark Consumer little bit to have
Receiver spawns threads for every partition of the topic and perform the
'store' operation in multiple threads. It would be good if the
receiver.store methods are made thread safe..which is not now presently .

Waiting for TD's comment on this Kafka Spark Low Level consumer.


Regards,
Dibyendu
