Kafka topic not being deleted

0 votes
I am using Kafka 0.10.0.1. There are 3 brokers in the cluster. I issued delete command to delete nearly 5 topics. I had checked, there are no consumers registered on those topics.

However, it's been more than 5 hours and those topics haven't yet been deleted. They are just marked for deletion. What can be the reason?

Can someone help?

By default in Kafka version 0.10, delete.topic.enable is false. 

To be able to delete topics, you need to set delete.topic.enable to true in the broker properties file.

Note that starting from 1.0.0, this is now enabled by default.

Hope this works for you!
