Subject Re: Processing time series data in order
Date Tue, 27 Dec 2016 05:25:32 GMT
There is a much easier approach: your can route all messages of a given Id
to a specific partition. Since each partition has a single writer you get
the ordering you wish for. Of course this won't work if your updates occur
in different hosts.
Also maybe Kafka streams can help shard the based on item Id to a second
topic
