Subject Re: Metric meaning
Date Fri, 06 Jan 2017 03:38:24 GMT
There's not currently anything more detaild than what is included in
http://kafka.apache.org/documentation/#monitoring There's some work trying
to automate the generation of that documentation (
https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/KAFKA-3480). That combined with some
addition to give longer descriptions for metrics could potentially help
this situation.

That said, for the example you mentioned, this is just what the description
says: when a log segment gets flushed to disk (including the index and time
index files), this tracks how long that flush takes.
