Client Name: Client Name to use when communicating with Kafka which map to kafka configuration client.id

Batch Size: Maximum number of messages batched in one MessageSet which map to kafka configuration batch.num.messages

Queue Buffering Max Time: Delay to wait for messages in the producer queue to accumulate before constructing message batches which map to kafka configuration queue.buffering.max.ms

Queue Max Buffer Size: Maximum total message size sum allowed on the producer queue which map to kafka configuration queue.buffering.max.kbytes

Queue Max Message: Maximum number of messages allowed on the producer queue which map to kafka configuration queue.buffering.max.messages

Compress Codec: compression codec to use for compressing message sets like none/gzip/snappy
