I am seeing unexpected behavior in the getOffsetsBefore method of the client API.
I understand the granularity of 'start-from-offset' via kafka spout is based on how many log segments you have.
I have created a demo program that repro's this on my
git hub account [ https://github.com/buildlackey/kafkaOffsetBug/blob/master/README.md ],
and I have also posted this same question to stack overflow with
a detailed set of steps for how to repro this issue
(using my test program and scripts).
Thanks in advance for your help !
