Subject HA / failover
Date Tue, 30 Aug 2011 14:18:13 GMT
Hi, I'm trying to figure out how my prod environment should look like, and still I don't seem
to understand how to achieve HA / FO conditions.

I realize this is going to be fully supported once there is replication, right?

But what about right now? How do you guys achieve this? 

I understand at least LinkedIn has a Kafka cluster deployed. 

- How do you guys ensure no messages get lost before flush to disk happens?

- How did you manage to always have a broker available and redirect producers to those during
I've tried using Producer class with "sync" type and zookeeper, and killing one of two brokers,
but I've got an exception. Should I handle and retry then?

So, to sum up, any pointer on how should I setup a prod env will be appreciated! Any doc I
might have missed or a simple short example would help.
