You can configure your Kafka consumers in a variety of ways in order to customize their behavior. In many production scenarios, ensuring your consumers perform well for your use case is a matter of tweaking consumer configurations. In this lab, we will work with this process hands-on. We will be provided with some consumer code and a list of issues that can be addressed by changing the consumer configuration. We will then need to identify what configuration changes should be made in order to address these issues, and we will need to implement those changes in the consumer.

What are Hands-On Labs?

Hands-On Labs are scenario-based learning environments where learners can practice without consequences. Don't compromise a system or waste money on expensive downloads. Practice real-world skills without the real-world risk, no assembly required.
