Subject Re: Storm spout offset forwarding
Date Tue, 29 Aug 2017 09:59:05 GMT
You can do this in a few ways. The first will work on your current Kafka

* Use
with LATEST to make your spouts start from the latest offset. Once your
topology is deployed, the spout will start consuming from the latest
offset. You will want to let it run for a little bit to ensure that your
spouts commit the new offset to all partitions. Once all spouts have
committed, you can reset your FirstPollOffsetStrategy to whatever you're
using now, and redeploy.

* Upgrade to Kafka 0.11 and use the consumer groups tool as described below
(The following is a copy paste of an earlier post on this list):


You should be able to do this with the storm-kafka-client spout and a
sufficiently new Kafka cluster (0.11, see the documentation at
122%3A+Add+Reset+Consumer+Group+Offsets+tooling). Kafka ships with the
kafka/bin/ script. You can use this script with the
--reset-offsets option to reset offsets for a consumer group based on a
bunch of conditions (timestamp, offset and others).

Note that I haven't tried to do this, but I'd imagine you'd need to do
something like this:
* Ensure your kafka spout is configured to use the UNCOMMITTED_EARLIEST or
UNCOMMITTED_LATEST as its FirstPollOffsetStrategy.
* Find the consumer group your spout is running as.
* Stop (kill) the topology containing the spout you want to reset. You need
to do this to avoid having the spout commit offsets while you're working
with the kafka-consumer-groups tool. If you reset the offset while the
spout is running, it will ignore the reset.
* Use to reset the offsets for your consumer
group. Reference the KIP link to see how to do this, or just run to get it to print usage.
* Redeploy your topology
