Kafka Ingestion logs

Apache Druid can handle streaming ingestion jobs at any scale. This occasionally poses challenges. Apache Kafka is a popular distributed event streaming platform, so it’s a natural choice for this presentation. As a community, we hope to improve our existing documentation of Kafka errors, so we’re hoping that this presentation will get the ball rolling. We’ll cover basics about setting up a Kafka streaming ingestion job, including a best practice tip or two such as monitoring your deployment with metrics and logs. We’ll also talk about the location of Kafka related logs within your deployment. We’ll conclude with some common Kafka ingestion errors and solutions, specifically lag and parsing.
