Subject Re: Handling multi-line messages?

Since the console-consumer seems to display strings correctly, it sounds
like an issue with LogStash parser. Perhaps you'll have better luck asking
on LogStash mailing list?

Kafka just stores the bytes you put in and gives the same bytes out when
you read messages. There's no parsing or encoding done in Kafka itself
(other than the encoder/decoder you use in producer / consumer)
