Tune Batch Indexing Kafka Partitions
The first batch indexing variable that you should determine is the minimum number of Kafka partitions required.
Use the following formula to determine the minimum number of Kafka partitions for the enrichment toplogy:
Num Partitions=Max( t/p,t/c)
tis the desired throughput
pis the maximum throughout using a single producer
cis the maximum throughput using a single consumer
You can estimate the minimum number of required partitions based on the original calculations performed for enrichment topologies. However, this might or may might be suitable as the message size increases as it progresses through Metron topologies. This increased message size can affect throughput. For this reason, we recommend that you perform the same steps to calculate the value for the batch indexing topic.
