We are trying to configure replication for our real-time ingestion via Tranquility, and everything is working extremely well.
We want to add in replication to survive the loss of a Peon/MiddleManager. In playing with the settings, when I configure replicants = 2, partitions = 1, I only see a single task. I expected to see two tasks: one on each middle manager, providing redundancy, for a single segment/partition.
However, when I run with replicants = 2, partitions = 2, I see four tasks with the following suffixes:
That looks better, but am I to presume that I need partitioning to achieve replication?
(or can you point me to some docs that describe the relationship between partitioning and replication?)
thanks in advance,
