Subject should HeartbeatThread be a daemon thread?
Date Mon, 21 Nov 2016 22:03:06 GMT
Hi folks,

We're seeing an issue where an exception inside the main processing loop of
a consumer doesn't cause the JVM to exit, as expected (and, in our case,
desired). From the thread dump, it appears that what's blocking exit is the
"kafka-coordinator-heartbeat-thread". From what I understand of what it
does, it seems to me like this should be a daemon thread, but it's not. Is
this a bug, or deliberate?
