>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/KAFKA-196
>             Project: Kafka
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: core
>            Reporter: Pierre-Yves Ritschard

> Since topic logs are stored in a directory holding the topic's name, creation of the
directory might fail for large strings.
> This is not a problem per-se but the exception thrown is rather cryptic and hard to figure
out for operations.
> I propose fixing this temporarily with a hard limit of 200 chars for topic names, it
would also be possible to hash the topic name.
> Another concern is that the exception raised stops the broker, effectively creating 
a simple DoS vector, I'm concerned about how tests or wrong client library usage can take
down the whole broker.
