NiFi: ConsumeKafka fails to retrieve from Kafka

NiFi: ConsumeKafka fails to retrieve from Kafka

Rising Star

Hi,

NiFi has not been able to retrieve the messages from Kafka, within few secs after the start it throws the below error. The below log detail doesn't provide adequate detail to troubleshoot. Could you please shed some light on tracing the below issue?

  • Kafka version : 0.9.0.2.4.2.0-258
  • HDF Version: 2.0.1

NiFi log:

Adding the below had no effect in the nifi-app.log.

<appender name="APP_FILE">

.

<logger name="org.apache.nifi.processors.kafka.pubsub.ConsumeKafka" level="DEBUG" />

<logger name="org.apache.nifi.processors.kafka.pubsub.PublishKafka" level="DEBUG" />

.

</appender>

It gets stuck at the very first polling and never retrieves any messages.

is your cluster kerberized? do you have ranger enabled? is ranger plugin enabled for kafka? if yes to those questions, does nifi user have access to topic you are trying to consume from?

Also confirming you are using consumekafka and not the consumekafka_0_10 version?

Re: NiFi: ConsumeKafka fails to retrieve from Kafka

Please see above log, you would notice NiFi can talk to Kafka. The issue appears to be with the poll that goes on indefinite wait OR cannot fetch within the specified timeout (both server, client), causing the single threaded consumer to timeout.

However, as requested NiFi is a standalone, but kerberized. NiFi user and the group have been authorized to access the topic. Yes, it's ConsumeKafka and not ConsumeKafka_0_10.

As far as enabling ranger is concerned, it is not, but do you see any reason with that with the above behavior?
