    Description

      We added a patch to the producer to refresh the metadata for all topics periodically. However, the producer only does this for the topics in the last batch. But some topics sent by the producer could be low throughput and might not be present in every batch. If we bounce the cluster or if brokers fail and leaders change, the metadata for those low throughput topic is not refreshed by this periodic topic metadata request. The next produce request for those topics have to fail and then a separate metadata request needs to be reissued to handle the produce request. This is especially a problem for the migration tool. So even if the producer had a chance to refresh the metadata when the leader changed, it throws LeaderNotAvailableExceptions much later when it sends a request for that topic.

      I propose we just fetch data for all topics sent by the producer in the periodic refresh of topic metadata
