Subject [jira] [Commented] (KAFKA-6437) Streams does not warn about missing input topics, but hangs
Date Thu, 22 Mar 2018 15:54:00 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/KAFKA-6437?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16409759#comment-16409759

Mariam John commented on KAFKA-6437:

In the KafkaStreams we can use the admin client to list all topics and go through the source
and sink topics to see which all topics are missing and print an error message like a MissingTopicException.
Is there something more we want to do for a fix or is there more to this bug I am missing.

>    Affects Versions: 1.0.0

> *Case*
> Streams application with two input topics being used for a left join.
> When the left side topic is missing upon starting the streams application, it hangs "in
the middle" of the topology (at …00009, see below). Only parts of the intermediate topics
are created (up to …00009)
> When the missing input topic is created, the streams application resumes processing.

> {noformat}
> *Why this matters*
> The applications does quite a lot of preprocessing before joining with the missing input
topic. This preprocessing won't happen without the topic, creating a huge backlog of data.
> *Fix*
> Issue an `warn` or `error` level message at start to inform about the missing topic and
it's consequences.
