Without fixing KAFKA-1017, the issue is that the producer will maintain a
socket connection per min(#partitions, #brokers). If you have lots of
producers, the open file handlers on the broker could be an issue.
So, what KAFKA-1017 fixes is to pick a random partition and stick to it for
a configurable amount of time, and then switch to another random partition.
This is the behavior in 0.7 when a load balancer is used and reduces #
socket connections significantly.
The issue you are reporting seems like a bug though. Which revision in 0.8
are you using?
