As part of the logging goal this quarter the rsyslog-kafka pacakge will be gradually rolled out to virtually all hosts. On stretch this carries a dependency of librdkafka1 (>= 0.9.4) However, the version currently available in stretch is 0.9.3-1, with 0.11.6-1~bpo9+1 in stretch-backports.
As discussed in https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/#/c/operations/puppet/+/472694/ it will be preferable to backport librdkafka-0.11.6-1~bpo9+1 to stretch-wikimedia (as opposed to apt pinning the package to stretch-backports on stretch hosts)
Creating this task to:
- Review the librdkafka_0.11.6-1~bpo9+1+wikimedia1 package (currently in the stretch-amd64 pbuilder result directory on boron) before importing to stretch-wikimedia and deploying to the fleet
- Discuss if it is necessary to align librdkafka versions between jessie and stretch.
