Subject [jira] [Commented] (KAFKA-763) Add an option to replica from the largest offset during unclean leader election
Date Sun, 24 Feb 2013 15:58:12 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/KAFKA-763?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13585402#comment-13585402

Guozhang Wang commented on KAFKA-763:

About the "the replicas may not be identical for a chunk of offsets" issue, if we do not want
to have any non-resolvable divergence, the following may fix it:

When an non-ISR replica is elected as the leader (assuming itself could know that from ZK,
but I'm not sure if it is true), the new leader records its current earliest/latest offset,
whose messages are still in sync with the old leader. When an follower wakes up and request
LO and FO, the leader returns the recorded LO and FO instead of its current earliest/latest

But this could result in lots of fetching also. If we choose availability over consistency
in this case, we can just live with it.

> If there is an unclean leader election, a follower may have an offset out of the range
of the leader. Currently, the follower will delete all its data and refetch from the smallest
offset of the leader. It would be useful to add an option to let the follower refetch from
the largest offset of the leader since refetching from the smallest offset may take some time.
