Say if you have 3 brokers and 2 consumers in a consumer group, you may choose 6.
So when one broker is offline, the load is still well balanced.
If you use 12, when you add a fouth broker, the load is still well balanced.

Subject: Best partition configuration

I have not been able to find reliable advice regarding how many partitions should exist on
a single broker. How many partitions have you used, and what kind of throughput have you seen?

Thanks in advance!
