Subject Re: multiple streams with multiple actions - proper way?
Date Tue, 01 Aug 2017 07:26:17 GMT
Hi Peter,

this kind of use case is supported, but it is best practice to split
independent pipelines into individual jobs.
One reason for that is to isolate failures and restarts.
For example, I would split the program you posted into two programs, one
for the "foo" topic and one of the "bar" topic. Depending on the complexity
of the operations, you might also want to split it further.

Best, Fabian
