1 - About

Task is a connector implementation on how data is copied to or from Kafka


3 - Metadata

These tasks have no state stored within them. Task state is stored in Kafka in special topics and managed by the associated connector.

4 - Failure

When a worker fails, tasks are rebalanced across the active workers. When a task fails, no rebalance is triggered as a task failure is considered an exceptional case. As such, failed tasks are not automatically restarted by the framework and should be restarted via the REST API.
