Subject [jira] [Created] (KAFKA-223) Add metadata requests to Kafka broker
Date Tue, 06 Dec 2011 17:59:41 GMT
Add metadata requests to Kafka broker

                 Key: KAFKA-223
             Project: Kafka
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: clients, core
            Reporter: David Ormsbee

It would be useful to be able to query metadata from Kafka for the purposes of monitoring
and discovery:

1. Version: Just a quick way to get the broker version so that we know not to send it a version
of a request or response that it can't handle.

2. Topic information: Return the default number of partitions per topic, a list of all topics,
number of partitions per topic if there are overrides, and start/end offsets for those topics
(assuming it's cheap to do so). This would allow Consumers and Producers to discover topics
and partitions on a single broker without involving ZooKeeper, and would also make it easier
to know how many partitions can be sent to when making a new topic with a ZK-aware Producer.
