Known Issues and Limitations

  • Pattern subscription is not supported.
  • The application reset tool hangs if it runs when the Kafka Streams application is running.
  • The application reset tool can throw a Null Pointer Exception if the date or duration parameter is used.
  • The application reset tool does not reset to intermediate offset if the topic has multiple partitions.
  • MAPR-KAFKA-581: Stream hangs in rebalancing state. The workaround is to set a larger timeout. This issue is caused by MS-915: MapR Stream application hangs inside cycle.

Resolved Issues

  • None.
