Do you have any tests that measure that your high priority data is being
delayed ? Assuming you are using 0.8, the end to end latency can be reduced
by tuning some configs on the consumer (fetch.min.bytes, fetch.wait.max.ms
).
The defaults for these configs are already tuned for low latency though.
