Subject Re: [SS]Kafka EOS transaction timeout solution
Date Wed, 04 Sep 2019 06:49:15 GMT
Thanks for your reply.
1. About submit tasks to commit kafka transaction
kafka producer commit transaction is lightweight action, compared with
sending message to kafka, there is little chance to fail in commit
transaction. However to implement EOS, we must consider commit transaction
fail, and we should focus on transaction commit timeout.
2. About transaction commit timeout
I agree with you to notice user. In addition to set `transaction.timeout.ms`
configure and notice user in doc, maybe we can do something to resend data
to kafka, fall back to at-least-once, when find transaction timeout, right?
