Kafka HDP doubt

Kafka HDP doubt

Expert Contributor

I gone with this HDP Kafka PDF (https://docs.hortonworks.com/HDPDocuments/HDP2/HDP-2.6.3/bk_kafka-component-guide/bk_kafka-component-guide.pdf)

Can someone brief on this line :

"Kafka consumers keep track of which messages have already been consumed by storing the current offset."

Please also correct my understanding on Current Offset and Commit Offset :

Current Offset is taken care by Kafka Broker .

Commit Offset is taken care by Consumer .
