Subject java, oom, gc stop the world
Date Wed, 23 Jan 2013 03:14:30 GMT
In the wild, what sort of memory usage patterns have you guys seen with
kafka?

I'm not that well versed with java and its memory/gc issues, what have you
guys experienced with your production brokers?  (assuming consumers and
producers are not that much of an issue).

How do you determine how much memory to allocate to a given broker?  Is it
based on factors such as:

1. producers are mostly using batch versus single messages
2. messages per second
3. size of message payload
4. # of consumers connecting to a given broker
etc.

Is there a "magic" forumula?
