Subject Re: Kafka Spout

As per KafkaConsumer documentation<>:

“ Setting means that offsets are committed automatically with a
frequency controlled by the config “

That means that the Spout disregards if the Tuple is acked or not;  every time interval (as
controlled by ) the offset will be committed. This can have have an
impact on the delivery guarantees, because an offset may be committed, yet the tuple may fail.

Hello, I'd like to understand difference between auto commit mode true/false in new KafkaSpout.

With auto.commit.enabled = false KafkaSpout will move my offset relying on acked tuples, it
seems easy.

But what happens if I turn auto commit on?
How Kafka make decision which offset to commit?
