Unable to manually commit offset in kafka direct stream, Spark streaming

Unable to manually commit offset in kafka direct stream, Spark streaming


Spark Version: 2.4

Spark Streaming kafka: spark-streaming-kafka-0-10_2.11


Observe the throw new Exception(); in while loop. Even if the batch fails because of the exception, i see the offset committed, I am expecting some lag here as the processing failed, what is wrong here ? : false



JavaInputDStream<ConsumerRecord<String, String>> kafkaStream = KafkaUtils.createDirectStream(jssc,
                    ConsumerStrategies.<String, String>Subscribe(topics, kafkaParams));

    kafkaStream.foreachRDD(kafkaStreamRDD -> {
                // fetch kafka offsets for manually committing it later
                OffsetRange[] offsetRanges = ((HasOffsetRanges) kafkaStreamRDD.rdd()).offsetRanges();

                // filter unwanted data
                kafkaStreamRDD.filter(new Function<ConsumerRecord<String, String>, Boolean>() {

                    //filter logic here

                }).foreachPartition(kafkaRecords -> {

                    //Initializing DB connections

                    while (kafkaRecords.hasNext()) {

                        //doing some work here

                        //-----> EXCEPTION
                        throw new Exception();

                // commit offsets saveOffsets after processing
            ((CanCommitOffsets) kafkaStream.inputDStream()).commitAsync(offsetRanges, (offsets, exception) -> {
                if (exception != null) {
                    System.out.println("-------------Unable to commit offsets, something went wrong, trace ------------"+ exception.getCause());
                    exception.printStackTrace(); // need this for driver
                } else {
                    System.out.println("Successfully committed offsets"); // need this for driver
                    for (OffsetRange offsetRange : offsetRanges) {
                        System.out.println("Offset Info: paratition {}, fromOffset {} untilOffset {}: "+ offsetRange.partition() +":"+ offsetRange.fromOffset() +":"+ offsetRange.untilOffset());
