Affects Version/s: 2.1.0
Fix Version/s: None
openjdk version "11.0.1" 2018-10-16 LTS
OpenJDK Runtime Environment 18.9 (build 11.0.1+13-LTS),
CentOS Linux release 7.3.1611 (Core),
We upgraded cluster recently and running kafka 2.1.0 on java 11.
For a time being everything went ok, but then random brokers started to halt from time to time.
When it happens the broker still looks alive to other brokers, but it stops to receive network traffic. Other brokers then throw IOException:
On the problematic broker all logging stops. No errors, no exceptions - nothing.
This also "breaks" all cluster - since clients and other brokers "think" that broker is still alive,
they are trying to connect to it and it seems that leader election leaves problematic brokers as a leader.
I would be glad to provide any further details if somebody could give an advice what to investigate when it happens next time.
