> There is a need for a ZooKeeper-based Kafka consumer that does not re-balance. This is
needed because we may be handling partitioning outside of Kafka. For example, I may have a
stateful process that is meant to consume only from Partition 7 of a given Kafka topic. When
that process stops, I don't want another consumer to take over partition 7.
> The benefits we get from using the ZooKeeper-based consumer (vs the Simple Consumer)
without rebalancing is that offsets will still be handled by Kafka/ZK, as will failover when
a partition's leader disappears/fails.
> I think the way to do this is to add a consumer config parameter that disables a consumer
group's rebalancing. That way, the first consumer in the group to connect (when the ZK node
is created) can specify if rebalancing should be enabled for the consumer group. If rebalancing
is disabled, the consumers should be forced to supply a list of partition IDs that they wish
to read from. Perhaps this can be done during the createMessageStreams call?
