I'm running the Kafka 0.8 version downloaded from the downloads page. I'm
getting lots of issues with socket timeouts from producer and consumer. I'm
also getting errors where brokers that are shut down in a controlled manner
do not get removed from the meta data in other brokers. For instance, I
have two brokers, I shut down one and all producers that were writing to
that broker start failing because they are still trying to write to that
broker. Waiting quite a while does not fix the issue. Restarting the
producers does not fix the issue.
It's possible I have something mis-configured. I'm using the "production"
config from the 0.8 documentation though.
So my question is whether or not there is a more stable version available.
If so, where do I get it? Is there a plan for releasing the official 0.8
