Subject [jira] [Commented] (KAFKA-864) bin/kafka-gen-reassignment.sh
Date Wed, 17 Apr 2013 18:33:18 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/KAFKA-864?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13634292#comment-13634292

Jun Rao commented on KAFKA-864:

If we just want to use a new broker to replace a failed one, a simpler solution is to just
set the broker.id of the new broker to be the same as the failed one. When you restart the
new broker, it will automatically replicate all missing data. No need to run the partition
reassignment tool.

>             Project: Kafka
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>    Affects Versions: 0.8
>            Reporter: Scott Clasen
> Better tooling for replacing failed brokers and reassigning partitions.  
> The output of ./bin/kafka-list-topic.sh makes doing this in bulk painful.
> Tool should output json format acceptable to ./bin/kafka-reassign-partitions.sh
> Spec: bin/kafka-gen-reassignment.sh
