Hi Binita,

When you use a group id with a high level consumer, the messages will be
distributed among all consumers sharing the same group. So if you have 3
consumers sharing the same group, each will process 1/3 of the messages
within the group. By contrast, if each of the same 3 consumers used a
different group id, they would each see all of the messages.

Hope that helps,
