Re: How does Kafka decide which Consumer out of multiple Consumer clients to assign to a single topic partition
We range partition a sorted list of topic-partitions over a sorted list of
consumer instances. This makes the rebalancing algorithm deterministic. As
soon as you bring up the 2nd consumer instance, if its position in the
sorted list is before the position of the 1st consumer client, it will end
up owning the partition.
