I have kafka running on a three host cluster. I have a script that can automatically start zookeepers on all three hosts and then start kafka servers on them. It can also kill those processes automatically. My question is after I kill all processes, can I restart right away? Is there any time out setting that may prevent me from doing that?
In some cases, after restart, I notice the servers were in a wrong state and when I tried to create a topic, it would report 0 server was available.
