Kafka >> mail # user >> No leaders elected after topics created

Re: No leaders elected after topics created
As part of topic creation, the controller broker has to elect leader for
each of the topics and this involves a few writes to zookeeper. So it might
take several seconds to complete leader election for 300 topics and that
time would increase if you have many partitions per topic.

Which delete partition script are you referring to? We don't have a delete
topic feature in Kafka yet. So you can only create more partitions, but not
delete them.
