Ivan Babrou commented on KAFKA-6314:
------------------------------------

Is there a workaround that allows universal alerting for lagging consumers?

> Add a tool to delete kafka based consumer offsets for a given group similar to the reset
tool. It could look something like this:
> kafka-consumer-groups --bootstrap-server localhost:9092 --delete-offsets --group somegroup
> The case for this is as follows:
> 1. Consumer group with id: group1 subscribes to topic1
> 2. The group is stopped 
> 3. The subscription changed to topic2 but the id is kept as group1
> Now the out output of kafka-consumer-groups --describe for the group will show topic1
even though the group is not subscribed to that topic. This is bad for monitoring as it will
show lag on topic1.
