Subject Number of Partitions Per Broker
Date Tue, 15 Jan 2013 07:55:48 GMT
I was re-reading this: https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/KAFKA/Operations and noticed
that the number of partitions is 1. Is this accurate? In our environment we are currently
running 20+ partitions per topic - with two brokers, the gut feel was this would speed up
our ability to read from many threads in a consumer group. What I am lacking is a true understanding
of the  pros/cons of having more partitions  on a given broker, what are they? Are there guidelines
to follow in setting up the partitions?

Thanks in advance,
