I'm new to Kafka. I was wondering if it's possible to increase the no. of partitions of a topic during runtime(programmatically). I could see that there're command line tools to achieve this. If I do not have any other option, I was thinking of solving this by starting with excess no. of partitions and adding the logic to Partitioner class to utilize only a few partitions, initially. Later when the load goes up, by changing some hot property, producer can be re-configured to push to additional partitions. Is this a right way to do this? Please share if you've any ideas.
