We have noticed that kafka-connect cannot find its connector
configuration after a few passed weeks. The web ui reports that no
connectors are available even though the configuration records are
still available in config.storage.topic. Its possible to start the
connectors again by curling the configuration.
Looking through the KafkaConfigBackingStore.java source and tried it
locally and it looks like it does the right thing. But maybe this is
related to compaction?
Any ideas what could go wrong here?
