Re: Does Kafka stores Producer/Consumer Details
Not really - well, brokers obviously have to maintain these
connections from producers but it maintains no additional per-producer
Same for consumers. For high-level consumers, the consumers themselves
maintain state (e.g., registration, partition ownership, offsets) in
zookeeper but there is no per-consumer state on the broker (although
with KAFKA-1000, we will be moving offset management to the broker).
