Talk: Kafka Consumer Proxy
Abstract: Kafka Consumer Proxy is a forwarding proxy that consumes messages from Kafka and dispatches them to a user registered gRPC service endpoint. With Kafka Consumer Proxy, the experience of consuming messages from Apache Kafka for pub-sub use cases is as seamless and user-friendly as receiving (g)RPC requests. In this talk, we will share (1) the motivation for building this service, (2) the high-level architecture, (3) the mechanisms we designed to achieve high availability, scalability, and reliability, and (4) the current adoption status.
Haitao Zhang is a Software Engineer from Uber. He has been working on Kafka since he joined Uber in 2018. His work focuses on improving Kafka Observability and simplifying Message Consuming from Kafka. Specifically, he built a Kafka Availability Monitor service to track Kafka SLAs; he built a Consumer Group Monitor Service to track consumer group activities; he built a Messaging Consumer (Java) and a Kafka Consumer Proxy to simply Kafka consumers and enhance the functionality of the open-source consumer library. Before joining Uber, Haitao received his PhD degree from UCLA, specializing in Networking Systems.
Yang Yang is a Senior Software Engineer from Uber. She has been working on Kafka since she joined Uber. Her work focuses on building and improving services in the Kafka ecosystem. Additionally, she is the major maintainer on uReplicator. Prior to Uber, she has worked at Electronic Arts and Microsoft.
