We have deployed kafka_ta modular app on a Universal Forwarder and pointed to an indexer. It works perfectly fine.

Meanwhile - while discussing about DR for universal forwarder - the following question came up -

If kafka_ta app is down for brief period, when it comes up - will it be able to retrieve messages from the point - where it went down? - in other words - will it miss any messages if it is down for brief period?
