Subject Re: [DISCUSS] KIP-107: Add purgeDataBefore() API in AdminClient
Date Wed, 04 Jan 2017 01:29:15 GMT
the issue with tracking committed offsets is whos offsets do you track?

1. some topics have multiple groups
2. some "groups" are really one-offs like developers spinning up console
consumer "just to see if there's data"
3. there are use cases where you want to deliberately "wipe" data EVEN IF
its still being consumed

#1 is a configuration mess, since there are multiple possible strategies.
#2 is problematic without a definition of "liveliness" or special handling
for console consumer? and #3 is flat out impossible with committed-offset
