Partition is different from replicas. A topic can have one or more
partitions and each partition can have one or more replicas. A consumer
consumes data at partition level. In other words, a consumer gets the same
data no matter how many replicas are there.
When you say the consumer only gets half of the messages, do you mean that
it gets half of the messages that are produced?
You may want to take a look at the consumer example inhttp://kafka.apache.org/08/api.html
