What are the number of network threads we should be running with a 2 broker
cluster (and replication=2)?  We have roughly 150-400 SimpleConsumers
running, depending on the application state.  We can spend some engineering
time consolidating many of the consumers, but the figure I''ve cited is for
our current test configuration.  We will have around 160 processes in the
production environment trying to read topics, so that is the bare minimum
we could reduce the connections to.  And we want to scale up from there
over the next year.  With our current architecture of a thread per topic,
we will have hundreds of SimpleConsumers chuggingaway (only a couple of
producers by the way, though we want to convert more of our data flow and
that will create more producers over time).

Thanks for your help,
