Setup

The first thing to do is to run the landoop/fast-data-dev Docker image. For example:

docker run --rm -it -p 2181:2181 -p 3030:3030 -p 8081:8081 -p 8082:8082 -p 8083:8083 -p 9092:9092 -p 9581:9581 -p 9582:9582 -p 9583:9583 -p 9584:9584 -e ADV_HOST=127.0.0.1 landoop/fast-data-dev:latest

Note: Please follow the instructions on fast-data-dev README to customize the container.

You can execute a bash shell at the running container as follow:

docker run --rm -it --net=host landoop/fast-data-dev bash

Note: Kafka utilities are now available.

Topics

You can create a new Kafka topic named my-topic as follows:

kafka-topics --create --zookeeper localhost:2181 --replication-factor 1 --partitions 3 --topic my-topic

You can verify that the my-topic topic was successfully created by listing all available topics:

kafka-topics --list --zookeeper localhost:2181

You can add more partitions as follows:

kafka-topics --zookeeper localhost:2181 --alter --topic my-topic --partitions 16

You can delete a topic named my-topic as follows:

kafka-topics --zookeeper localhost:2181 --delete --topic my-topic

You can find more details about a topic named cc_payments as follows:

kafka-topics --describe --zookeeper localhost:2181 --topic cc_payments

You can see the under-replicated partitions for all topics as follows:

kafka-topics --zookeeper localhost:2181/kafka-cluster --describe --under-replicated-partitions

Producers

You can produce messages from standard input as follows:

kafka-console-producer --broker-list localhost:9092 --topic my-topic

You can produce new messages from an existing file named messages.txt as follows:

kafka-console-producer --broker-list localhost:9092 --topic test < messages.txt

You can produce Avro messages as follows:

kafka-avro-console-producer --broker-list localhost:9092 --topic my.Topic --property value.schema='{"type":"record","name":"myrecord","fields":[{"name":"f1","type":"string"}]}' --property schema.registry.url=http://localhost:8081

You can enter a few new values from the console as follows:

{"f1": "value1"}

Consumers

Consume messages

You can begin a consumer from the beginning of the log as follows:

kafka-console-consumer --bootstrap-server localhost:9092 --topic my-topic --from-beginning

You can consume a single message as follows:

kafka-console-consumer --bootstrap-server localhost:9092 --topic my-topic  --max-messages 1

You can consume a single message from __consumer_offsets as follows:

  • kafka version 0.9.x.x ~ 0.10.x.x*
kafka-console-consumer --bootstrap-server localhost:9092 --topic __consumer_offsets --formatter 'kafka.coordinator.GroupMetadataManager$OffsetsMessageFormatter' --max-messages 1
  • kafka version 0.11.x.x+ *
kafka-console-consumer.sh --bootstrap-server localhost:9092 --topic __consumer_offsets --formatter "kafka.coordinator.group.GroupMetadataManager\$OffsetsMessageFormatter" --max-messages 1

You can consume and specify a consumer group as follows:

kafka-console-consumer --topic my-topic --new-consumer --bootstrap-server localhost:9092 --consumer-property group.id=my-group

Consume Avro messages

You can consume 10 Avro messages from a topic named position-reports as follows:

kafka-avro-console-consumer --topic position-reports --new-consumer --bootstrap-server localhost:9092 --from-beginning --property schema.registry.url=localhost:8081 --max-messages 10

You can consume all existing Avro messages from a topic named position-reports as follows:

kafka-avro-console-consumer --topic position-reports --new-consumer --bootstrap-server localhost:9092 --from-beginning --property schema.registry.url=localhost:8081

Consumers admin operations

You can list all groups as follows:

kafka-consumer-groups --new-consumer --list --bootstrap-server localhost:9092

You can describe a Group named testgroup as follows:

kafka-consumer-groups --bootstrap-server localhost:9092 --describe --group testgroup

Config

You can set the retention for a topic as follows:

kafka-configs --zookeeper localhost:2181 --alter --entity-type topics --entity-name my-topic --add-config retention.ms=3600000

You can print all configuration overrides for a topic named my-topic as follows:

kafka-configs --zookeeper localhost:2181 --describe --entity-type topics --entity-name my-topic

You can delete a configuration override for retention.ms for a topic named my-topic as follows:

kafka-configs --zookeeper localhost:2181 --alter --entity-type topics --entity-name my-topic --delete-config retention.ms 

Performance

Although Kafka is pretty fast by design, it is good to be able to test its performance. You can check the Produce performance of Kafka as follows:

kafka-producer-perf-test --topic position-reports --throughput 10000 --record-size 300 --num-records 20000 --producer-props bootstrap.servers="localhost:9092"

ACLs

You can add a new consumer ACL to an existing topic as follows:

kafka-acls --authorizer-properties zookeeper.connect=localhost:2181 --add --allow-principal User:Bob --consumer --topic topicA --group groupA

You can add a new producer ACL to an existing topic as follows:

kafka-acls --authorizer-properties zookeeper.connect=localhost:2181 --add --allow-principal User:Bob --producer --topic topicA

You can list the ACLs of a topic named topicA as follows:

kafka-acls --authorizer-properties zookeeper.connect=localhost:2181 --list --topic topicA

Zookeeper

You can enter the zookeeper shell as follows:

zookeeper-shell localhost:2182 ls
