Re: Kafka Broker Configuration Tuning and Repartitioning topic

a) Not as of now. Please feel free to create the JIRA and specify the
details there

b) I doubt increasing partitions will help. 500 GB/day/topic suggests
the data per partition is only 10 GB/day. Before thinking about
increasing the # of partitions, I would try a few things-

1. Inspect the consumer throughput metrics through the mbeans exposed
on the Kafka consumers.
2. If individual consumer throughput looks reasonable, then deploy
more consumer instances and see if that helps. Since you have 40-50
partitions per topic, you can have at least those many consumer
3. If not, then check if the consumers post-process the data consumed
from these partitions. If this processing is slow, your consumption
rate will reduce.
