  2. Exert backpressure further up the application and retry sends.
  3. Send all messages to alternative local storage, from which they will be ingested into Kafka asynchronously.

Can we have zookeeper and broker in same system?

We have been running zookeeper and kafka broker on the same node in production environment for years without any problems. The cluster is running at very very high qps and IO traffics, so I dare say that our experience suits most scenarios. The advantage is quite simple, which is saving machines.

What happens if Kafka cluster fails?

This allows Kafka to automatically failover to these replicas when a server in the cluster fails so that messages remain available in the presence of failures. Replication in Kafka happens at the partition granularity where the partition’s write-ahead log is replicated in order to n servers.

How does Kafka producer retry work?
