Björn, broker configs are default config but can be overwritten when a topic is created. And this happens when Kafka Streams creates internal topics. Thus, you need to change the setting Kafka Streams applies when creating topics.
Also note: if cleanup.policy = compact, the setting of `log.retention.X` do not apply. Those setting only apply if cleanup.policy is set to "delete". The size of a compacted topic depends on the number of unique keys -- there will be one message per key -- if newer message with the same key are written, older message with this key can be garbage collected. If a message is never updated (and not explicitly deleted with a tomstone records, ie, a record with null-value), the record will never be deleted for a compacted topic. -Matthias On 4/6/18 2:10 PM, Björn Häuser wrote: > Hello Guozhang > > thanks. > > So after reading much more docs I still do not have the complete picture. > > These are our relevant settings from kafka broker configuration: > > log.cleanup.policy=delete > # set log.retention.bytes to 15 gb > log.retention.bytes=16106127360 > # set log.retention.hours to 30 days > log.retention.hours=720 > > Though one of internal kafka stream topics (with cleanup.policy = compact) > grew to ~40gb today. > > What am I missing?
