Subject reliable way to count number of messages
Date Mon, 08 Jun 2020 08:42:36 GMT
Hi there,

I have one topic with one partition and i want to know how many messages are there in the

I noticed that if i run:

kafka-console-consumer --topic mytopic  --bootstrap-server [..]:9092 --from-beginning

Processed a total of 23626 messages

If I instead run:

 kafka.tools.GetOffsetShell --broker-list [..]:9092 --topic mytopic --time -1


So the 2 commands return different numbers and the first returns exactly half the amount the
second does.

Why the 2 commands do not return the same amount and which one is right?

kafka-console-consumer --version
5.4.1-ccs (Commit:fd1e543386b47352)

kafka-run-class -version
openjdk version "1.8.0_212"
