How are offsets reset in kafka 0.11

Contributor

I'm using kafka 0.11. I'm trying to reset the offset of a topic in a consumer group but don't see consistency among the option. How is the offset calculated for different options in kafka-consumer-groups ?

by-duration is specified relative to the current time, but --to-datetime is in UTC unless otherwise specified. Since you are on BST (British Summer Time), you'd need to use UTC+1, specifying "--to-datetime 2018-05-31T14:00:00.000+01" to get the same result - assuming I have my ISO standards right...
