Thanks Bert for response.

Are you saying that if i set replication factor to 3 then two nodes can go
down, in that case only 3rd down can serve the data?

In that case(replication factor 3 ) also if some partitions are in
synchronization process and meanwhile a node goes down then we may face
this issue again.
