Downsides of not using any sink groups
Hi,

What would be the downsides of connecting a lot of sinks to the channel
directly without any sink groups. Going by the transactional semantics, I
would think that there shouldn't be any loss of data. The downsides that I
expect would be that there wouldn't be any backoff and thus the sink that
is failing will keep trying and failing. Also load wouldn't be guaranteed
to be balanced, although since all of them get equal chance at dequeing
events it shouldn't be too bad, would it? Are there any other downsides
that I am missing?
Thanks in Advance,
Pankaj
