|Tool Web Site||http://kafka.apache.org/|
|Supported Methodology||[Flat File] Multi-Model, Data Store (Physical Data Model) via Java API on Kafka File|
Import tool: Apache Kafka 1.0 (http://kafka.apache.org/)
Import interface: [Flat File] Multi-Model, Data Store (Physical Data Model) via Java API on Kafka File from Apache Kafka
Import bridge: 'ApacheKafka' 10.0.1
IMPORTING FROM KAFKA
Loads metadata from all or specified Kafka topics. Each topic is assumed to have messages of the same type. The bridge samples multiple messages to figure our their common structure.
This bridge supports the following file formats:
- Flat File (CSV)
- Open Office Excel (XSLX)
- COBOL Copybook
- Apache Avro
- Apache Parquet
- Apache ORC
- W3C XML
as well as the compressed versions of the above formats:
- ZIP (as a compression format, not as archive format)
- Snappy (as standard Snappy format, not as Hadoop native Snappy format)
Known issue: When you run both Kafka cluster (server) version 1.1.x and the bridge (client) on Windows systems the import could fail with a timeout error. The Kafka version 2.0.x resolved the issue.
Please refer to the individual parameter's tool tips for more detailed examples.
|Bootstrap servers||List of host:port pairs to use for establishing the initial connection to the Kafka cluster, and finding available servers and topics.
For example, 'host1:port1, host2:port2'.
The list does not need to include all available servers but should have at least one.
You may want to include more than one server in case any of them are down.
|Driver version||The Kafka bootstrap server driver version in the N.N.N format, like 1.1.0
The version is used to load the necessary version-specific libraries.
|User||Name of the user account on the services tier. Left the field empty if you do not use SSL protocol.||STRING|
|Password||Password for the account that is specified in the User parameter.||PASSWORD|
|Password of the keystore||Password of the keystore.||PASSWORD|
|Topics||List of topic names, like 'topic1, topic2'.
An empty list means that all available topics.
You can specify topic names as a wieldcard pattern: 'topic?' , '*topic*' or 'topic_?,*topic*'.
|Number of sample messages||The maximum number of messages to sample from topics. These messages are used to identify topic format details, like field names and data types.
When empty, the number of sample messages is assumed to be 1000.
|Miscellaneous||Specify miscellaneous options.||STRING|
