[jira] [Commented] (KAFKA-693) Consumer rebalance fails if no leader available for a partition and stops all fetchers

Jun Rao commented on KAFKA-693:
-------------------------------

Ok. This is actually a real problem. During rebalance, we actually try to get the leader even though we don't really need it at rebalancing time. The fix seems easy.

In ZKRebalancerListener.addPartitionTopicInfo(), we don't really need to get the leaderId, which is not used in PartitionTopicInfo. So, we can just get rid of that code. We can also get rid of the code in rebalance() that computes leaderIdForPartitionsMap.

> I am currently experiencing this with the MirrorMaker but I assume it happens for any rebalance. The symptoms are:
> I have replication factor of 1
> 1. If i start the MirrorMaker (bin/kafka-run-class.sh kafka.tools.MirrorMaker --consumer.config mirror-consumer.properties  --producer.config mirror-producer.properties --blacklist 'xdummyx' --num.streams=1 --num.producers=1) with a broker down
> 1.1 I set the refresh.leader.backoff.ms to 600000 (10min) so that the ConsumerFetcherManager doesn't retry to often to get the unavailable partitions
> 1.2 The rebalance starts at the init step and fails: Exception in thread "main" kafka.common.ConsumerRebalanceFailedException: KafkaMirror_mirror-01-1357893495345-fac86b15 can't rebalance after 4 retries
> 1.3 After the exception, everything stops (fetchers and queues)
> 1.4 I attached the full logs (info & debug) for this case
> 2. If i start the MirrorMaker with all the brokers up and then kill a broker
> 2.1 The first rebalance is successful
> 2.2 The consumer will handle correctly the broker down and stop the associated ConsumerFetcherThread
> 2.3 The refresh.leader.backoff.ms to 600000 works correctly
> 2.4 If something triggers a rebalance (new topic, partition reassignment...), then we go back to 1., the rebalance fails and stops everything.
> I think the desired behavior is to consumer whatever is available, and try later at some intervals. I would be glad to help on that issue although the Consumer code seems a little tough to get on.
