Subject spout instance id - can be used for partitioning?
Date Thu, 09 Jan 2014 16:37:06 GMT
Hi guys,

>From a given topic in Kafka I can read messages from multiple partitions. Let's say we
have 100 partitions.

Can this load be evenly distributed across 10 spouts reading from Kafka. If spout instance
has persistent id - I can use hash function to understand which part of partitions should
given spout instance read.

Do we have spout instance id notion accessible in Storm Java API? Even simple number from
1 to 10 would work.
