I'm only guessing here regarding if this is the reason:
Pull is much more sensible when a lot of data is pushed through. It allows 
consumers consuming at their own pace, slow consumers do not slow the complete 
system down.

why did Kafka choose pull instead of push for a consumer? push sounds like it
is more realtime to me than poll and also wouldn't poll just keeps polling even
when they are no messages in the broker causing more traffic? please enlighten
