Like many other messaging systems, Kafka has put limit on the maximum message size. User will fail to produce a message if it is too large. This limit makes a lot of sense and people usually send to Kafka a reference link which refers to a large message stored somewhere else. However, in some scenarios, it would be good to be able to send messages through Kafka without external storage. At LinkedIn, we have a few use cases that can benefit from such feature. This talk covers our solution to send large message through Kafka without additional storage.
