Is it possible to pause kafka collection on a table, but not querying? Seems like ChangeTableState disable makes queries return empty as well as pausing kafka

That is not possible currently.
Although, we have had rquests for the feature
what is the use case for you?

Not really a production use case. I have a 100GB SSD and it’s about to pop, testing a large dataset locally.
Though I think certainly it could be useful in production. Maybe a producer goes haywire and we want to stop consuming that data and do a repair, while still leaving the table accessible
Is there an issue for this? I can create one
