Subject Kafka and Proposal on a future architecture of OpenWhisk
Date Fri, 17 Aug 2018 22:14:48 GMT
Hi - 
Separate thread regarding the proposal: what is considered for routing activations as overload
and destined for kafka?

In general, if kafka is not on the blocking activation path, why would it be used at all,
if the timeouts and processing expectations of blocking and non-blocking are the same?

One case I can imagine: triggers + non-blocking invokes, but only in the case where those
have some different timeout characteristics. e.g. if a trigger fires an action, is there any
case where the activation should be buffered to kafka if it will timeout same as a blocking

Sorry if I’m missing something obvious.
