this sounds like an interesting idea. But at the actual state of Kafka
this would mean, that I would have to extend the Kafka Producer and
classes on my own to support that kind of message/file transfer, wouldn't
This is a bit too much effort for me at the moment.
But of course it would be nice, if Kafka Producers or Consumers would
zero-copy file transfer natively.
At the moment I'm more thinking about sending a message to the consumer
with an URL of the huge binary file, and let the consumer fetch the file
URL directly. By that we would use Kafka only for sending a notification,
a new file exists at the source. The real file transfer would bypass
the Kafka queue.
