Jun Rao commented on KAFKA-1745:
--------------------------------

Did you call producer.close() when the producer thread is removed?

> Hi,
>     I'm using the java client API for Kafka. I wanted to send data to Kafka by using
a producer pool as I'm using a sync producer. The thread that sends the data is from the thread
pool that grows and shrinks depending on the usage. So, when I try to send data from one thread,
1 KQUEUE and 2 PIPES are created (got this info by using lsof). If I keep using the same thread
it's fine but when a new thread sends data to Kafka (using producer.send() ) a new KQUEUE
and 2 PIPEs are created.
> This is okay, but when the thread is cleared from the thread pool and a new thread is
created, then new KQUEUEs and PIPEs are created. The problem is that the old ones which were
created are not getting destroyed and they are showing up as open files. This is causing a
major problem as the number of open file keep increasing and does not decrease.
> Please suggest any solutions.
