Poseidon Cluster Build Status

Poseidon Cluster is a cluster extenstion the excellent Poseidon Ruby client for Kafka 0.8+. It implements the distribution concept of self-rebalancing Consumer Groups and supports the consumption of a single topic from multiple instances.

Consumer group instances share a common group name, and each message published to a topic is delivered to one instance within each subscribing consumer group. Consumer instances can be in separate processes or on separate machines.

Usage

Consuming messages

require 'poseidon_cluster'

consumer = Poseidon::ConsumerGroup.new(
            "my-group",                               # Group name
            ["kafka1.host:9092", "kafka2.host:9092"], # Kafka brokers
            ["kafka1.host:2181", "kafka2.host:2181"], # Zookeepers hosts
            "my-topic")                               # Topic name

consumer.partitions # => [0, 1, 2, 3] - all partitions of 'my-topic'
consumer.claimed    # => [0, 1] - partitions this instance is consuming

# Fetch a bulk of messages, auto-commit the offset
consumer.fetch do |partition, bulk|
  bulk.each do |m|
    puts "Fetched '#{m.value}' at #{m.offset} from #{partition}"
  end
end

# Get the offset for a partition
consumer.offset(0) # => 320 - current offset from partition 0

# Fetch more, commit manually
consumer.fetch commit: false do |partition, bulk|
  bulk.each do |m|
    puts "Fetched '#{m.value}' at #{m.offset} from #{partition}"
  end

  consumer.commit partition, bulk.last.offset+1 unless bulk.empty?
end
