The Ultimate UI Tool for Kafka

Apache Storm Spout Consumers


Offset Explorer also allows you to view the offsets of the Apache Storm's Kafka spouts. The Storm Kafka spouts store their offset in a different Zookeeper location and in a different format than the regular Kafka consumers. The Storm Kafka consumers have a different icon from the regular Kafka consumers, so they can quickly be spotted in the Browser Tree.


By default the Storm Kafka spout stores the offset at the root (/) of the Zookeeper hierarchy. However, you can specify a custom path where to store the consumer offset by specifying it in the SpoutConfig constructor. If you are storing the consumer offsets in a non-standard location, you can tell Offset Explorer where they are located. This can be done on Tools/Settings/Storm screen.
