Subject [jira] [Commented] (KAFKA-3711) Allow configuration of MetricsReporter subclasses
Date Tue, 07 Jun 2016 14:20:21 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/KAFKA-3711?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15318546#comment-15318546

Jeff Klukas commented on KAFKA-3711:

I would love to see this fixed as well. I'd also love to see some more documentation about
Kafka's config framework and how various interfaces like {{MetricsReporter}} are intended
to be used. Specifically, I'd like to see the developer docs describe that it's intended that
user-provided classes can define configuration options and provide some advice about how to
name those options.

I'd be interested in contributing docs and cleaning up the config code if it's clear what
needs to be done. Am I correct in understanding that the code change needed here is to ensure
that {{originals()}} is called rather than {{this.originals}} everywhere that we're passing
configs on in {{AbstractConfig}}?

>            Assignee: Guozhang Wang
>            Priority: Minor
>             Fix For:
> The current interface for attaching metrics reporters to clients allows only defining
a list of class names, but provides no means for configuring those reporters.
> There is at least one existing project (https://github.com/apakulov/kafka-graphite) that
solves this problem by passing additional properties into the client, which then get passed
on to the reporter. This seems to work quite well, but it generates warnings like {{The configuration
kafka.graphite.metrics.prefix = foo was supplied but isn't a known config.}}
> Should passing arbitrary additional parameters like this be officially supported as the
way to configure metrics reporters? Should these warnings about unrecognized parameters be
> Perhaps there should be some mechanism for registering additional configuration parameters
for clients to expect?
