But unnecessary rebalancing can cause applications to grind to a standstill.After a quick refresher on the traditional ‘eager’ consumer group rebalancing protocol we will survey recent improvements in the protocol such as static membership and increment cooperative rebalancing. Moreover, we will give practical advice on how to minimize rebalancing time for different types of applications. Bio: Christoph is a Solutions Architect with Confluent. Before joining Confluent, he developed streaming applications for the financial services industry and mobile applications for about everyone else. He holds a PhD in Mathematics and has a long-lasting interest in developing performant and secure software systems.
