DESCRIPTION ^

Kafka consumer API is implemented by Kafka::Consumer class.

The main features of the Kafka::Consumer class are:

The Kafka consumer response returns ARRAY references for offsets and fetch methods.

Array returned by offsets contains offset integers.

Array returned by fetch contains objects of Kafka::Message class.

CONSTRUCTOR

new

Creates a new consumer client object. Returns the created Kafka::Consumer object.

new() takes arguments in key-value pairs. The following arguments are recognized:

Connection => $connection

$connection is the Kafka::Connection object responsible for communication with the Apache Kafka cluster.

CorrelationId => $correlation_id

Optional, default is undef.

Correlation is a user-supplied integer. It will be passed back in the response by the server, unmodified. The $correlation_id should be an integer number.

CorrelationId will be auto-assigned (random negative number) if it was not provided on creation of Kafka::Producer object.

An exception is thrown if CorrelationId sent with request does not match CorrelationId received in response.

ClientId => $client_id

This is a user supplied identifier (string) for the client application.

ClientId will be auto-assigned if not passed in when creating Kafka::Producer object.

MaxWaitTime => $max_time

The maximum amount of time (ms) to wait when no sufficient data is available at the time the request was issued.

Optional, default is $DEFAULT_MAX_WAIT_TIME.

$DEFAULT_MAX_WAIT_TIME is the default time that can be imported from the Kafka module.

The $max_time must be a positive integer.

MinBytes => $min_bytes

The minimum number of bytes of messages that must be available to give a response. If the client sets this to $MIN_BYTES_RESPOND_IMMEDIATELY the server will always respond immediately. If it is set to $MIN_BYTES_RESPOND_HAS_DATA, the server will respond as soon as at least one partition has at least 1 byte of data or the specified timeout occurs. Setting higher values in combination with the bigger timeouts allows reading larger chunks of data.

Optional, int32 signed integer, default is $MIN_BYTES_RESPOND_IMMEDIATELY.

$MIN_BYTES_RESPOND_IMMEDIATELY, $MIN_BYTES_RESPOND_HAS_DATA are the defaults that can be imported from the Kafka module.

The $min_bytes must be a non-negative int32 signed integer.

MaxBytes => $max_bytes

The maximum bytes to include in the message set for this partition.

Optional, int32 signed integer, default = $DEFAULT_MAX_BYTES (1_000_000).

The $max_bytes must be more than $MESSAGE_SIZE_OVERHEAD (size of protocol overhead - data added by Kafka wire protocol to each message).

$DEFAULT_MAX_BYTES, $MESSAGE_SIZE_OVERHEAD are the defaults that can be imported from the Kafka module.

MaxNumberOfOffsets => $max_number

Limit the number of offsets returned by Kafka.

That is a non-negative integer.

Optional, int32 signed integer, default = $DEFAULT_MAX_NUMBER_OF_OFFSETS (100).

$DEFAULT_MAX_NUMBER_OF_OFFSETS is the default that can be imported from the Kafka module.

METHODS

The following methods are defined for the Kafka::Consumer class:

fetch( $topic, $partition, $start_offset, $max_size )

Get a list of messages to consume one by one up to $max_size bytes.

Returns the reference to array of the Kafka::Message objects.

fetch() takes the following arguments:

$topic

The $topic must be a normal non-false string of non-zero length.

$partition

The $partition must be a non-negative integer.

$start_offset

Offset in topic and partition to start from (64-bit integer).

The argument must be a non-negative integer. The argument may be a Math::BigInt integer on 32-bit system.

$max_size

$max_size is the maximum size of the messages set to return. The argument must be a positive int32 signed integer.

The maximum size of a request limited by MAX_SOCKET_REQUEST_BYTES that can be imported from Kafka module.

offsets( $topic, $partition, $time, $max_number )

Get a list of valid offsets up to $max_number before the given time.

Returns reference to array of the offset integers (Math::BigInt integers on 32 bit system).

offsets() takes the following arguments:

$topic

The $topic must be a normal non-false string of non-zero length.

$partition

The $partition must be a non-negative integer.

$time

Get offsets before the given time (in milliseconds since UNIX Epoch).

The argument must be a positive number.

The argument may be a Math::BigInt integer on 32 bit system.

The special values $RECEIVE_LATEST_OFFSET (-1), $RECEIVE_EARLIEST_OFFSETS (-2) are allowed.

$RECEIVE_LATEST_OFFSET, $RECEIVE_EARLIEST_OFFSETS are the defaults that can be imported from the Kafka module.

$max_number

$max_number is the maximum number of offsets to retrieve.

Optional. The argument must be a positive int32 signed integer.

DIAGNOSTICS ^

When error is detected, an exception, represented by object of Kafka::Exception::Consumer class, is thrown (see Kafka::Exceptions).

code and a more descriptive message provide information about thrown exception. Consult documentation of the Kafka::Exceptions for the list of all available methods.

Authors suggest using of Try::Tiny's try and catch to handle exceptions while working with Kafka package.

Invalid argument

Invalid argument passed to a new constructor or other method.

Can't send

Request cannot be sent.

Can't recv

Response cannot be received.

Can't bind

TCP connection can't be established on the given host and port.

Can't get metadata

Failed to obtain metadata from Kafka servers.

Leader not found

Missing information about server-leader in metadata.

Mismatch CorrelationId

CorrelationId of response doesn't match one in request.

There are no known brokers

Resulting metadata has no information about cluster brokers.

Can't get metadata

Received metadata has incorrect internal structure.
