      Description

      Currently, Kafka has per topic settings to control the size of one single log (log.retention.bytes). With lots of topics of different volume and as they grow in number, it could become tedious to maintain topic level settings applying to a single log.

      Often, a chunk of disk space is dedicated to Kafka that hosts all logs stored, so it'd make sense to have a configurable threshold to control how much space all data in one Kafka log data directory can take up.
