+<h3 id="introduction">Introduction</h3>
+<p><a href="http://kafka.apache.org">Apache Kafka</a> is a pull-based and distributed publish subscribe messaging system,
+topics are partitioned and replicated across nodes. </p>
+<p>The Kafka input operator consumes data from the partitions of a Kafka topic for processing in Apex. 
+The operator has the ability to automatically scale with the Kafka partitioning for high throughput. 
+It is fault-tolerant (consumer offset checkpointing) and guarantees idempotency to allow exactly-once results in the downstream pipeline.</p>
+<p>For more information about the operator design see this <a href="http://www.slideshare.net/ApacheApex/apache-apex-kafka-input-operator">presentation</a>
+and for processing guarantees this <a href="https://www.datatorrent.com/blog/end-to-end-exactly-once-with-apache-apex/">blog</a>.</p>
+<p>There are two separate implementations of the input operator,
+one built against Kafka 0.8 client and a newer version for the
+Kafka 0.9 consumer API that also works with MapR Streams.
+These reside in different packages and are described separately below.</p>
+<h3 id="kafka-input-operator-for-kafka-08x">Kafka Input Operator for Kafka 0.8.x</h3>
+<p>Package: <code>com.datatorrent.contrib.kafka</code></p>
+<p>Maven artifact: <a href="https://mvnrepository.com/artifact/org.apache.apex/malhar-contrib">malhar-contrib</a></p>
+<h3 id="abstractkafkainputoperator">AbstractKafkaInputOperator</h3>
+<p>This is the abstract implementation that serves as base class for consuming messages from Kafka messaging system. This class doesn’t have any ports.</p>

If the operator gets restored at window 10 then it will process the same messages again in window 10 which it did in the previous run before the failure. Idempotency is important but comes with higher cost because at the end of each window the operator needs to persist some state with respect to that window.

If K is less than N, the remaining topic partitions are assigned to the K operator instances in round-robin fashion.

+<h3 id="offsetmanager">OffsetManager</h3>
+<p>This is an interface for offset management and is useful when consuming data
+from specified offsets. Updates the offsets for all the Kafka partitions
+periodically. Below is the code snippet:        </p>
+<pre><code class="java">public interface OffsetManager
+{
+  public Map&lt;KafkaPartition, Long&gt; loadInitialOffsets();
+  public void updateOffsets(Map&lt;KafkaPartition, Long&gt; offsetsOfPartitions);
+}
+</code></pre>
+
+<h4 id="abstract-methods_2">Abstract Methods</h4>
+<p><code>Map &lt;KafkaPartition, Long&gt; loadInitialOffsets()</code>: Specifies the initial offset for consuming messages; called at the activation stage.</p>
+<p><code>updateOffsets(Map&lt;KafkaPartition, Long&gt; offsetsOfPartitions)</code>:  This
+method is called at every repartitionCheckInterval to update offsets.</p>
+<h3 id="partitioning">Partitioning</h3>
+<p>The logical instance of the KafkaInputOperator acts as the Partitioner
+as well as a StatsListener. This is because the
+AbstractKafkaInputOperator implements both the
+com.datatorrent.api.Partitioner and com.datatorrent.api.StatsListener
+interfaces and provides an implementation of definePartitions(...) and
+processStats(...) which makes it auto-scalable.</p>
+<h4 id="response-processstatsbatchedoperatorstats-stats">Response processStats(BatchedOperatorStats stats)</h4>
+<p>The application master invokes this method on the logical instance with
+the stats (tuplesProcessedPS, bytesPS, etc.) of each partition.
+Re-partitioning happens based on whether any new Kafka partitions added for
+the topic or bytesPS and msgPS cross their respective upper bounds.</p>
+<h4 id="definepartitions">DefinePartitions</h4>
+<p>Based on the repartitionRequired field of the Response object which is
+returned by processStats(...) method, the application master invokes
+definePartitions(...) on the logical instance which is also the
+partitioner instance. Dynamic partition can be disabled by setting the
+parameter repartitionInterval value to a negative value.</p>

+<ul>
+<li>
+<p><strong><em>clusters</em></strong> - String[]</p>
+<ul>
+<li>Mandatory Parameter.</li>
+<li>Specifies the Kafka clusters that you want to consume messages from. To configure multi-cluster support, you need to specify the clusters separated by ";".</li>
+</ul>
+</li>
+<li>
+<p><strong><em>topics</em></strong> - String[]</p>
+<ul>
+<li>Mandatory Parameter.</li>
+<li>Specified the Kafka topics that you want to consume messages from. If you want multi-topic support, then specify the topics separated by ",".</li>
+</ul>
+</li>
+<li>
+<p><strong><em>strategy</em></strong> - PartitionStrategy</p>
+<ul>
+<li>
+<p>Operator supports two types of partitioning strategies, <code>ONE_TO_ONE</code> and <code>ONE_TO_MANY</code>.</p>
+<p><code>ONE_TO_ONE</code>: If this is enabled, the AppMaster creates one input operator instance per Kafka topic partition. So the number of Kafka topic partitions equals the number of operator instances.
+<code>ONE_TO_MANY</code>: The AppMaster creates K = min(initialPartitionCount, N) Kafka input operator instances where N is the number of Kafka topic partitions. If K is less than N, the remaining topic partitions are assigned to the K operator instances in round-robin fashion. If K is less than initialPartitionCount, the AppMaster creates one input operator instance per Kafka topic partition. For example, if initialPartitionCount = 5 and number of Kafka partitions(N) = 2 then AppMaster creates 2 Kafka input operator instances.
+Default Value = <code>PartitionStrategy.ONE_TO_ONE</code>.</p>
+</li>
+</ul>
+</li>
+<li>
+<p><strong><em>initialPartitionCount</em></strong> - Integer</p>
+<ul>
+<li>When the ONE_TO_MANY partition strategy is enabled, this value indicates the number of Kafka input operator instances. 
+    Default Value = 1.</li>
+</ul>
+</li>
+<li>
+<p><strong><em>repartitionInterval</em></strong> - Long</p>
+<ul>
+<li>Interval specified in milliseconds. This value specifies the minimum time required between two repartition actions. 
+    Default Value = 30 Seconds.</li>
+</ul>
+</li>
+<li>
+<p><strong><em>repartitionCheckInterval</em></strong> - Long</p>
+<ul>
+<li>Interval specified in milliseconds. This value specifies the minimum interval between two stat checks.
+    Default Value = 5 Seconds.</li>
+</ul>
+</li>
+<li>
+<p><strong><em>maxTuplesPerWindow</em></strong> - Integer</p>
+<ul>
+<li>Controls the maximum number of messages emitted in each streaming window from this operator. Minimum value is 1. 
+    Default value = <code>MAX_VALUE</code> </li>
+</ul>
+</li>
+<li>
+<p><strong><em>initialOffset</em></strong> - InitialOffset</p>
+<ul>
+<li>Indicates the type of offset i.e, <code>EARLIEST</code> or <code>LATEST</code> or <code>APPLICATION_OR_EARLIEST</code> or <code>APPLICATION_OR_LATEST</code>. 
+    <code>LATEST</code> =&gt; Consume new messages from latest offset in the topic. 
+    <code>EARLIEST</code> =&gt; Consume all messages available in the topic.
+    <code>APPLICATION_OR_EARLIEST</code> =&gt; Consume messages from committed position from last run. If there is no committed offset, then start consuming from beginning.
+    <code>APPLICATION_OR_LATEST</code> =&gt; Consumes messages from committed position from last run. If a committed offset is unavailable, then start consuming from latest position.
+    Default value = <code>InitialOffset.APPLICATION_OR_LATEST</code></li>
+</ul>
+</li>
+<li>
+<p><strong><em>metricsRefreshInterval</em></strong> - Long</p>
+<ul>
+<li>Interval specified in milliseconds. This value specifies the minimum interval between two metric stat updates.
+    Default value = 5 Seconds.</li>
+</ul>
+</li>
+<li>
+<p><strong><em>consumerTimeout</em></strong> - Long</p>
+<ul>
+<li>Indicates the <a href="http://kafka.apache.org/090/javadoc/org/apache/kafka/clients/consumer/KafkaConsumer.html#poll">time waiting in poll</a> when data is not available.
+    Default value = 5 Seconds.</li>
+</ul>
+</li>
+<li>
+<p><strong><em>holdingBufferSize</em></strong> - Long</p>
+<ul>
+<li>Indicates the maximum number of messages kept in memory for emitting.
+    Default value = 1024.</li>
+</ul>
+</li>
+<li>
+<p><strong><em>consumerProps</em></strong> - Properties</p>
+<ul>
+<li>Specify the [consumer properties[(http://kafka.apache.org/090/documentation.html#newconsumerconfigs) which are not yet set to the operator.</li>
+</ul>
+</li>
+<li>
+<p><strong><em>windowDataManager</em></strong> - WindowDataManager</p>
+<ul>
+<li>If set to a value other than the default, such as <code>FSWindowDataManager</code>, specifies that the operator will process the same set of messages in a window before and after a failure. This is important but it comes with higher cost because at the end of each window the operator needs to persist some state with respect to that window.
+    Default value = <code>WindowDataManager.NoopWindowDataManager</code>.</li>
+</ul>
+</li>

+<h3 id="about-amazon-s3">About Amazon S3</h3>
+<hr />
+<p><strong>Amazon S3 (Simple Storage Service)</strong> is an object storage system with a web service interface to store and retrieve any amount of data at any time from anywhere on the web, offered by Amazon Web Services.</p>
+<h3 id="s3-output-module">S3 Output Module</h3>
+<hr />
+<p>Purpose of S3Output module is to upload files/directories into an Amazon S3 bucket using the multipart upload feature(see below).</p>
+<p>S3Output module is <strong>fault-tolerant</strong>, <strong>statically/dynamically partitionable</strong> and has <strong>exactly once</strong> semantics.</p>
+<p>Module class is <strong>S3OutputModule</strong> located in the package <strong>org.apache.apex.malhar.lib.fs.s3</strong>; please refer to <a href="https://github.com/apache/apex-malhar/blob/master/library/src/main/java/org/apache/apex/malhar/lib/fs/s3/S3OutputModule.java">github URL</a>.</p>
+<h3 id="overview">Overview</h3>
+<hr />
+<p>File upload to S3 can also be done using <strong>AbstractFileOutputOperator</strong> but that operator uploads large files sequentially; the current module in contrast can substantially improve the upload speed of large files by reading and uploading their constituent blocks in parallel. </p>
+<p>The table below lists additional benefits of this module over <strong>AbstractFileOutputOperator</strong>.</p>
+<table>
+<thead>
+<tr>
+<th><strong>S3OutputModule</strong></th>
+<th><strong>AbstractFileOutputOperator</strong></th>
+</tr>
+</thead>
+<tbody>
+<tr>
+<td>Maximum upload file size is 5TB.</td>
+<td>Maximum upload file size is 5GB.</td>
+</tr>
+<tr>
+<td>Best fit for both large and small files.</td>
+<td>Best fit for small files.</td>
+</tr>
+<tr>
+<td>Module uses AmazonS3Client API's to upload objects into S3. Large files will upload using multipart feature and small files(single block) will upload using <strong>putObject(...)</strong> API</td>
+<td>Operator uses Hadoop filesystems like <strong>S3AFileSystem</strong>. Consists of couple of steps to upload object into S3: (1) Write the data into the local filesystem. (2) When the stream closes, filesystem uploads the local object into S3.</td>
+</tr>

+<h3 id="multipart-upload-feature">Multipart Upload Feature</h3>
+<hr />
+<p>Uploading parts of a file is done via the <a href="http://docs.aws.amazon.com/AmazonS3/latest/dev/mpuoverview.html">multipart feature</a>; using this feature, each part of a file can be uploaded independently.
+After all parts of a file are uploaded successfully, Amazon S3 combines the parts as a single object.</p>
+<p>Please refer to the <a href="http://docs.aws.amazon.com/AmazonS3/latest/dev/llJavaUploadFile.html">Java code</a> for uploading file into Amazon S3 bucket using multipart feature.</p>
+<h3 id="module">Module</h3>
+<hr />
+<p>A <strong>module</strong> is a group of operators pre-wired together so they work as a single conceptual entity in an application. Typically, a module will contain a set of input ports, output ports and configuration properties. The operators internal to the module will be automatically configured based on the supplied module properties.</p>
+<h3 id="operators-in-s3outputmodule">Operators in S3OutputModule</h3>
+<hr />
+<p>Following diagram illustrates the DAG in this module:</p>
+<p><img alt="" src="../images/s3output/s3outputmodule.png" /></p>
+<ul>
+<li>
+<p><strong><em>S3InitiateFileUploadOperator</em></strong></p>
+<ul>
+<li>Initiate the upload for the file using <strong>AmazonS3Client.initiateMultipartUpload(...)</strong> method only if the number of blocks for a file is greater than 1. By successfully initiating the upload, S3 returns a response of type <strong>InitiateMultipartUploadResult</strong>, which includes the <strong>upload ID</strong>, which is the unique identifier for the multipart upload. This <strong>upload ID</strong> must be included in each operation like block upload and upload completion request.
+If the file has single block then the operator emits an empty string, this is an indication to downstream operators to not use the multi-part feature.</li>
+<li>This operator emits the pair <strong>(filemetadata, uploadId)</strong> to <strong>S3FileMerger</strong> and the triple <strong>(filePath, metadata, uploadId)</strong> to <strong>S3BlockUploadOperator</strong>.</li>
+</ul>
+</li>
+<li>
+<p><strong><em>S3BlockUploadOperator</em></strong></p>
+<ul>
+<li>This operator upload the blocks into S3 using different calls which depend on number of blocks of a file.
+If the file has single block then upload the block using <strong>AmazonS3Client.putObject(...)</strong> call. S3 returns a response of type <strong>PutObjectResult</strong> which includes the <strong>ETag</strong>.
+If the file has more blocks then upload the block using <strong>AmazonS3Client.uploadPart(...)</strong> call. S3 returns a response of type <strong>UploadPartResult</strong> which includes the <strong>ETag</strong>. This <strong>ETag</strong> value must be included in the request to complete multipart upload.</li>
+<li><strong>S3BlockUploadOperator</strong> emits the pair <strong>(path, ETag)</strong> to <strong>s3FileMerger</strong>.</li>
+</ul>
+</li>
+<li>
+<p><strong><em>S3FileMerger</em></strong></p>
+<ul>
+<li>Complete multipart upload request using <strong>AmazonS3Client.completeMultipartUpload(...)</strong>. This call must include the <strong>upload ID</strong> and a list of both part numbers and corresponding <strong>ETag</strong> values. <strong>S3FileMerger</strong> sends the complete multi-part upload request to S3 once it has all the <strong>part ETag's</strong> of a file. 
+<strong>Amazon S3</strong> creates an object by concatenating the parts in ascending order based on part number. After a successful upload request, the parts no longer exist and S3 response includes an <strong>ETag</strong> which uniquely identifies the combined object data. </li>

+<li>This property maps to the <a href="https://github.com/apache/apex-core/blob/master/api/src/main/java/com/datatorrent/api/Context.java">OperatorContext.TIMEOUT_WINDOW_COUNT</a> attribute and is a count of streaming windows. If specified, it will be set on all the operators of this module. Since these operators interact with S3, there may be additional latencies that cause the platform to kill them because they are considered stalled. Increasing this value prevents this and allows the application to proceed despite the latencies.</li>

+<h3 id="partitioning">Partitioning</h3>
+<hr />
+<p>Partitioning the module means that the operators in the module can be partitioned.</p>
+<h4 id="stateless-partitioning">Stateless Partitioning</h4>
+<hr />
+<p>Partitioning the operator in module can be achieved as follows:</p>
+<h5 id="s3initiatefileuploadoperator">S3InitiateFileUploadOperator</h5>
+<hr />
+<p>Partition of this operator is achieved indirectly as follows:</p>
+<pre><code class="xml">&lt;property&gt;
+  &lt;name&gt;dt.operator.{ModuleName}#InitiateUpload.attr.PARTITIONER&lt;/name&gt;
+  &lt;value&gt;com.datatorrent.common.partitioner.StatelessPartitioner:{N}&lt;/value&gt;
+&lt;/property&gt;     
+</code></pre>
+
+<p>where {ModuleName} is the name of the S3OutputModule and
+      {N} is the number of static partitions.
+Above lines will partition S3InitiateFileUploadOperator statically {N} times.</p>
+<h5 id="s3blockuploadoperator">S3BlockUploadOperator</h5>
+<hr />
+<p>Locality of S3BlockUploadOperator with upstream operator (FSInputModule/BlockReader) must set to PARTITION_PARALLEL for performance benefits by avoiding serialization/deserialization of objects. So, partitioning of this operator depends on upstream operator which is of type FSInputModule/BlockReader.</p>
+<h5 id="s3filemerger">S3FileMerger</h5>
+<hr />
+<p>By setting the parameter "mergerCount", <strong>S3FileMerger</strong> be statically partitioned. This can be achieved by two ways:</p>
+<p>(a) Following code can be added to populateDAG(DAG dag, Configuration conf) method of application to statically partitioning <strong>S3FileMerger</strong> {N} times:</p>
+<pre><code class="java">  FSInputModule inputModule = dag.addModule(&quot;HDFSInputModule&quot;, new FSInputModule());
+  S3OutputModule outputModule = dag.addModule(&quot;S3OutputModule&quot;, new S3OutputModule());
+  outputModule.setMergerCount({N});
+</code></pre>
+
+<p>(b) By setting the parameter in properties file as follows</p>
+<pre><code class="xml">  &lt;property&gt;
+    &lt;name&gt;dt.operator.{ModuleName}.prop.mergerCount&lt;/name&gt;
+    &lt;value&gt;{N}&lt;/value&gt;
+  &lt;/property&gt;
+</code></pre>
+
+<p>where {ModuleName} is the name of the S3OutputModule and {N} is the number of static partitions.
+Above lines will partition <strong>S3FileMerger</strong> statically {N} times.          </p>
+<h4 id="dynamic-partitioning">Dynamic Partitioning</h4>
+<hr />
+<p>Dynamic partitioning is a feature of Apex platform which changes the number of partitions of an operator at run time.
+Locality of <strong>S3BlockUploadOperator</strong> with upstream operator(FSInputModule/BlockReader) must set to PARTITION_PARALLEL for performance benefits by avoiding serialization/deserialization of objects. So, dynamic partitioning of this operator depends on upstream operator which is of type FSInputModule/BlockReader.</p>
+<p>From the example application, by setting the maxReaders and minReaders value to FSInputModule, <strong>S3BlockUploadOperator</strong> dynamically partitioned between minReaders and maxReaders. This can be achieved by two ways:
+(a) Following code can be added to <strong>populateDAG(DAG dag, Configuration conf)</strong> method of application to dynamically partitioned <strong>S3BlockUploadOperator</strong> between {N1} and {N2} times:</p>
+<pre><code class="java">FSInputModule inputModule = dag.addModule(&quot;HDFSInputModule&quot;, new FSInputModule());
+inputModule.setMinReaders({N1});
+inputModule.setMaxReaders({N2});
+S3OutputModule outputModule = dag.addModule(&quot;S3OutputModule&quot;, new S3OutputModule());
+</code></pre>
+
+<p>(b) By setting the parameter in properties file as follows:</p>
+<pre><code class="xml">&lt;property&gt;
+  &lt;name&gt;dt.operator.HDFSInputModule.prop.minReaders&lt;/name&gt;
+  &lt;value&gt;{N1}&lt;/value&gt;
+&lt;/property&gt;
+&lt;property&gt;
+  &lt;name&gt;dt.operator.HDFSInputModule.prop.maxReaders&lt;/name&gt;
+  &lt;value&gt;{N2}&lt;/value&gt;
+&lt;/property&gt;         
+</code></pre>
+
+<p>{N1} and {N2} represents the number of minimum and maximum partitions of BlockReader.
+Above lines will dynamically partitioned the <strong>S3BlockUploadOperator</strong> between {N1} and {N2} times. </p>

+<h3 id="about-transform-operator">About Transform operator</h3>
+<hr />
+<p>Transform means mapping of field expression from input to output or conversion of fields from one type to another.
+This operator is stateless. This operator receives objects on its input port; for each such input object, it creates a new output object whose fields are computed as expressions involving fields of the input object. 
+The types of the input and output objects are configurable as are the expressions used to compute the output fields. </p>
+<p>The operator class is <code>TransformOperator</code> located in the package <code>com.datatorrent.lib.transform</code>.
+Please refer to <a href="https://github.com/apache/apex-malhar/blob/master/library/src/main/java/com/datatorrent/lib/transform/TransformOperator.java">github URL</a> for <code>TransformOperator</code>.</p>
+<h3 id="use-case">Use Case</h3>
+<hr />
+<p>Consider the data that needs to be transformed as per output schema.</p>
+<p>Consider input objects with these fields:</p>
+<table>
+<thead>
+<tr>
+<th>Name</th>
+<th>Type</th>
+</tr>
+</thead>
+<tbody>
+<tr>
+<td>FirstName</td>
+<td>String</td>
+</tr>
+<tr>

+</tr>
+<tr>
+<td>DateOfBirth</td>
+<td>java.util.Date</td>
+</tr>
+<tr>
+<td>Address</td>
+<td>String</td>
+</tr>
+</tbody>
+</table>
+<p>and output objects with fields: </p>
+<table>

+</tr>
+<tr>
+<td>Age</td>
+<td>Integer</td>
+</tr>
+<tr>
+<td>Address</td>
+<td>String</td>
+</tr>
+</tbody>
+</table>
+<p>Suppose <code>Name</code> is a concatenation of <code>FirstName</code> and <code>LastName</code> and 
+        <code>Age</code> is computed by subtracting the <code>DateOfBirth</code> from the current year.</p>
+<p>These simple computations can be expressed as Java expressions where the input object is
+represented by $ and provided as configuration parameters as follows:</p>
+<pre><code>Name =&gt; {$.FirstName}.concat(\&quot; \&quot;).concat({$.LastName})
+Age =&gt; (new java.util.Date()).getYear() - {$.dateOfBirth}.getYear()

+<p>Note: <code>org.joda.time.DateTime</code> class is not present in the default list. So, we need to add this library to <code>expressionFunctions</code> as below in populateDAG method:</p>

+operator.setExpressionMap(expressionMap);
+</code></pre>
+
+<p>Above Properties also can be set in properties file as follows:</p>

+<h3 id="partitioning">Partitioning</h3>
+<hr />
+<p>Being stateless, this operator can be partitioned using any of the built-in partitioners present in the Malhar library by setting a few properties as follows:</p>
+<h4 id="stateless-partitioning">Stateless partitioning</h4>
+<p>Stateless partitioning will ensure that TransformOperator will be partitioned right at the starting of the application and will remain partitioned throughout the lifetime of the DAG.
+TransformOperator can be stateless partitioned by adding following lines to properties.xml:</p>
+<pre><code class="xml">  &lt;property&gt;
+    &lt;name&gt;dt.operator.{OperatorName}.attr.PARTITIONER&lt;/name&gt;
+    &lt;value&gt;com.datatorrent.common.partitioner.StatelessPartitioner:{N}/value&gt;
+  &lt;/property&gt;
+</code></pre>
+
+<p>where {OperatorName} is the name of the TransformOperator operator and
+      {N} is the number of static partitions.
+Above lines will partition TransformOperator statically {N} times. </p>
+<h4 id="dynamic-partitioning">Dynamic Partitioning</h4>
+<p>Dynamic partitioning is a feature of Apex platform which changes the partition of the operator based on certain condition.
+TransformOperator can be dynamically partitioned using the below two partitioners:</p>
+<h5 id="throughput-based">Throughput based</h5>
+<p>Following code can be added to populateDAG(DAG dag, Configuration conf) method of application to dynamically partitioning TransformOperator:</p>
+<pre><code class="java">StatelessThroughputBasedPartitioner&lt;TransformOperator&gt; partitioner = new StatelessThroughputBasedPartitioner&lt;&gt;();
+partitioner.setCooldownMillis(10000);
+partitioner.setMaximumEvents(30000);
+partitioner.setMinimumEvents(10000);
+dag.setAttribute(transform, OperatorContext.STATS_LISTENERS, Arrays.asList(new StatsListener[]{partitioner}));
+dag.setAttribute(transform, OperatorContext.PARTITIONER, partitioner);
+</code></pre>
+
+<p>Above code will dynamically partition TransformOperator when the throughput changes.
+If the overall throughput of TransformOperator goes beyond 30000 or less than 10000, the platform will repartition TransformOperator 
+to balance throughput of a single partition to be between 10000 and 30000.
+CooldownMillis of 10000 will be used as the threshold time for which the throughout change is observed.</p>
+<p>Source code for this dynamic application can be found <a href="https://github.com/DataTorrent/examples/blob/master/tutorials/transform/src/main/java/com/example/transform/DynamicTransformApplication.java">here</a>.</p>
