> When the disk (raid with caches dir) dies on a Kafka broker, typically the filesystem
gets mounted into read-only mode, and hence when Kafka tries to read the disk, they'll get
a FileNotFoundException with the read-only errno set (EROFS).
> However, as long as there is no produce request received, hence no writes attempted on
the disks, Kafka will not exit on such FATAL error (when the disk starts working again, Kafka
might think some files are gone while they will reappear later as raid comes back online).
Instead it keeps spilling exceptions like:
> {code}
> 2015/01/07 09:47:41.543 ERROR [KafkaScheduler] [kafka-scheduler-1] [kafka-server] []
Uncaught exception in scheduled task 'kafka-recovery-point-checkpoint'
> java.io.FileNotFoundException: /export/content/kafka/i001_caches/recovery-point-offset-checkpoint.tmp
(Read-only file system)
> 	at java.io.FileOutputStream.open(Native Method)
> 	at java.io.FileOutputStream.<init>(FileOutputStream.java:206)
> 	at java.io.FileOutputStream.<init>(FileOutputStream.java:156)
> 	at kafka.server.OffsetCheckpoint.write(OffsetCheckpoint.scala:37)
> {code}
