>             Fix For:
> We recently see a few cases where RecordTooLargeException is thrown because 
> the compressed message sent by KafkaProducer exceeded the max message size.
> The root cause of this issue is because the compressor is estimating the 
> batch size using an estimated compression ratio based on heuristic 
> compression ratio statistics. This does not quite work for the traffic with 
> highly variable compression ratios. 
> For example, if the batch size is set to 1MB and the max message size is 1MB. 
> Initially a the producer is sending messages (each message is 1MB) to topic_1 
> whose data can be compressed to 1/10 of the original size. After a while the 
> estimated compression ratio in the compressor will be trained to 1/10 and the 
> producer would put 10 messages into one batch. Now the producer starts to 
> send messages (each message is also 1MB) to topic_2 whose message can only be 
> compress to 1/5 of the original size. The producer would still use 1/10 as 
> the estimated compression ratio and put 10 messages into a batch. That batch 
> would be 2 MB after compression which exceeds the maximum message size. In 
> this case the user do not have many options other than resend everything or 
> close the producer if they care about ordering.
> This is especially an issue for services like MirrorMaker whose producer is 
> shared by many different topics.
> To solve this issue, we can probably add a configuration 
> "enable.compression.ratio.estimation" to the producer. So when this 
> configuration is set to false, we stop estimating the compressed size but 
> will close the batch once the uncompressed bytes in the batch reaches the 
> batch size.
