Say I create web application/service where customers signup, and they place
to my servers every time someone clicks on a link on their website.
Each customer will send to their own custom subdomain like:
Say I have 100,000 customers.
1. If all events are of the same type, what are the potential means I could
partition my topics? Or does it not make sense to? I'm confused as to
what I am reading, is a given kafka topic + paritition combination ONLY
allowed to be consumed by a single consumer group? If so, why is that?
the kafka server can only handle a single thread connecting to it??
2. I will have a java servlet that will contain my producer (each front end
server will have the same servlet that will contain a producer). I want to
batch every x messages. From what I understand, my producer is something I
will create using a singleton correct?
3. I want my consumers to by dynamic in size, so during peak hours I want
to fire up more nodes to keep up with traffic, is there a production
worthy consumer daemon that I can use (or learn from) that is open sourced
