Subject [jira] [Updated] (KAFKA-687) Rebalance algorithm should consider partitions from all topics
Date Tue, 08 Jan 2013 20:00:12 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/KAFKA-687?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel

Neha Narkhede updated KAFKA-687:

    Affects Version/s: 0.8.1
> Rebalance algorithm should consider partitions from all topics
> --------------------------------------------------------------
>                 Key: KAFKA-687
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/KAFKA-687
>             Project: Kafka
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>    Affects Versions: 0.8.1
>            Reporter: Pablo Barrera
> The current rebalance step, as stated in the original Kafka paper [1], splits the partitions
per topic between all the consumers. So if you have 100 topics with 2 partitions each and
10 consumers only two consumers will be used. That is, for each topic all partitions will
be listed and shared between the consumers in the consumer group in order (not randomly).
> If the consumer group is reading from several topics at the same time it makes sense
to split all the partitions from all topics between all the consumer. Following the example,
we will have 200 partitions in total, 20 per consumer, using the 10 consumers.
> The load per topic could be different and the division should consider this. However
even a random division should be better than the current algorithm while reading from several
topics and should harm reading from a few topics with several partitions.
