> Currently if you enable log compaction the compactor will kick in whenever you hit a
certain "dirty ratio", i.e. when 50% of your data is uncompacted. Other than this we don't
give you fine-grained control over when compaction occurs. In addition we never compact the
active segment (since it is still being written to).
> Other than this we don't really give you much control over when compaction will happen.
The result is that you can't really guarantee that a consumer will get every update to a compacted
topic--if the consumer falls behind a bit it might just get the compacted version.
> This is usually fine, but it would be nice to make this more configurable so you could
set either a # messages, size, or time bound for compaction.
> This would let you say, for example, "any consumer that is no more than 1 hour behind
will get every message."
> This should be relatively easy to implement since it just impacts the end-point the compactor
considers available for compaction. I think we already have that concept, so this would just
be some other overrides to add in when calculating that.
