Known Issues and Limitations

A list of known issues and limitations for this release of Streams Replication Manager

Re-created source topics are not synced until the offsets have caught up with target topic
Problem: Messages written to topics that were deleted and re-created are not replicated until the source topic reaches the same offset as the target topic. For example, if at the time of deletion and re-creation there are a 100 messages on the source and target clusters, new messages will only get replicated once the re-created source topic has 100 messages. This leads to messages being lost.
Workaround: N/A.
Deleted topics can get automatically re-created
Problem: If auto.create.topics.enable is enabled, deleted topics are automatically recreated on source clusters.
Workaround: Prior to deletion, remove the topic from the topic whitelist with the srm-control tool. This prevents topics from being re-created.
srm-control topics --source [SOURCE_CLUSTER] --target [TARGET_CLUSTER] --remove [TOPIC1][TOPIC2]
