Creating Kafka topic does not create partition in kakfa-logs

Rising Star

Hello, I am using the command line to create a kafka topic and when I do I dont see the partition directory for logs created in Kafka-logs directory... I am using this command:

./bin/kafka-topics.sh --create --zookeeper localhost:2181 --replication-factor 1 --partitions 1 --topic dataloss30-1

It then says that the topic was successfully created. I can see the topic when I run a command to list the topics such as :

./bin/kafka-console-consumer.sh --zookeeper localhost:2181 --topic dataloss30-1 --from-beginning

I can even see the data IN the topic itself with the command line but when I go to /kafka-logs I do not see a directory for the topic and this is an issue because when I use Nifi to try to ConsumeKafka with it, it cannot find the topic.

When I use Nifi to create a topic through auto-generated topics, it creates the partition directory.

Has anyone else experienced anything like this or has any ideas as to why its happening?

I restarted Kafka and now it seems to be working. Anyone know why this might be happening?

Hi All,

I am also having similar issue. I tried creating topic from command line and topic created successfully and able to list it. But when I navigate to /kafka-logs, I couldn't find any files listed over there.

# bin/kafka-topics.sh --create --zookeeper localhost:2181 --replication-factor 1 --partitions 1 --topic test
Created topic "test".

# bin/kafka-topics.sh --list --zookeeper localhost:2181
test

Also, below is the log message I see in state_change.log

My HDP Version 2.3.0 and this setup is done in GCP. Also, for kafka to be listened over public IP, I added below additional parameters

advertised.host.name

advertised.port
