Subject Re: Consuming a Kafka topic with multiple partitions from Flink
Date Tue, 29 Aug 2017 20:41:43 GMT
Hi Tony,

Thanks for your thoughts. I found the issue in my Flink processing chain. I
had Kafka partition ids 0, 1, 2 and therefore it was a different issue. I
had a keyBy operation before my process operation (which contains my main
stream processing logic) and there was only one key being assigned.
Therefore, after keyBy, stream had only one partition and only one process
operation was getting messages.
