camel-netty-kafka-connector source configuration

When using camel-netty-kafka-connector as source make sure to use the following Maven dependency to have support for the connector:

<dependency>
  <groupId>org.apache.camel.kafkaconnector</groupId>
  <artifactId>camel-netty-kafka-connector</artifactId>
  <version>x.x.x</version>
  <!-- use the same version as your Camel Kafka connector version -->
</dependency>

To use this Source connector in Kafka connect you’ll need to set the following connector.class

connector.class=org.apache.camel.kafkaconnector.netty.CamelNettySourceConnector

The camel-netty source connector supports 120 options, which are listed below.

Name Description Default Priority

camel.source.path.protocol

The protocol to use which can be tcp or udp. One of: [tcp] [udp]

null

HIGH

camel.source.path.host

The hostname. For the consumer the hostname is localhost or 0.0.0.0. For the producer the hostname is the remote host to connect to

null

HIGH

camel.source.path.port

The host port number

null

HIGH

camel.source.endpoint.disconnect

Whether or not to disconnect(close) from Netty Channel right after use. Can be used for both consumer and producer.

false

MEDIUM

camel.source.endpoint.keepAlive

Setting to ensure socket is not closed due to inactivity

true

MEDIUM

camel.source.endpoint.reuseAddress

Setting to facilitate socket multiplexing

true

MEDIUM

camel.source.endpoint.reuseChannel

This option allows producers and consumers (in client mode) to reuse the same Netty Channel for the lifecycle of processing the Exchange. This is useful if you need to call a server multiple times in a Camel route and want to use the same network connection. When using this, the channel is not returned to the connection pool until the Exchange is done; or disconnected if the disconnect option is set to true. The reused Channel is stored on the Exchange as an exchange property with the key NettyConstants#NETTY_CHANNEL which allows you to obtain the channel during routing and use it as well.

false

MEDIUM

camel.source.endpoint.sync

Setting to set endpoint as one-way or request-response

true

MEDIUM

camel.source.endpoint.tcpNoDelay

Setting to improve TCP protocol performance

true

MEDIUM

camel.source.endpoint.bridgeErrorHandler

Allows for bridging the consumer to the Camel routing Error Handler, which mean any exceptions occurred while the consumer is trying to pickup incoming messages, or the likes, will now be processed as a message and handled by the routing Error Handler. By default the consumer will use the org.apache.camel.spi.ExceptionHandler to deal with exceptions, that will be logged at WARN or ERROR level and ignored.

false

MEDIUM

camel.source.endpoint.broadcast

Setting to choose Multicast over UDP

false

MEDIUM

camel.source.endpoint.clientMode

If the clientMode is true, netty consumer will connect the address as a TCP client.

false

MEDIUM

camel.source.endpoint.reconnect

Used only in clientMode in consumer, the consumer will attempt to reconnect on disconnection if this is enabled

true

MEDIUM

camel.source.endpoint.reconnectInterval

Used if reconnect and clientMode is enabled. The interval in milli seconds to attempt reconnection

10000

MEDIUM

camel.source.endpoint.backlog

Allows to configure a backlog for netty consumer (server). Note the backlog is just a best effort depending on the OS. Setting this option to a value such as 200, 500 or 1000, tells the TCP stack how long the accept queue can be If this option is not configured, then the backlog depends on OS setting.

null

MEDIUM

camel.source.endpoint.bossCount

When netty works on nio mode, it uses default bossCount parameter from Netty, which is 1. User can use this option to override the default bossCount from Netty

1

MEDIUM

camel.source.endpoint.bossGroup

Set the BossGroup which could be used for handling the new connection of the server side across the NettyEndpoint

null

MEDIUM

camel.source.endpoint.disconnectOnNoReply

If sync is enabled then this option dictates NettyConsumer if it should disconnect where there is no reply to send back.

true

MEDIUM

camel.source.endpoint.exceptionHandler

To let the consumer use a custom ExceptionHandler. Notice if the option bridgeErrorHandler is enabled then this option is not in use. By default the consumer will deal with exceptions, that will be logged at WARN or ERROR level and ignored.

null

MEDIUM

camel.source.endpoint.exchangePattern

Sets the exchange pattern when the consumer creates an exchange. One of: [InOnly] [InOut] [InOptionalOut]

null

MEDIUM

camel.source.endpoint.nettyServerBootstrapFactory

To use a custom NettyServerBootstrapFactory

null

MEDIUM

camel.source.endpoint.networkInterface

When using UDP then this option can be used to specify a network interface by its name, such as eth0 to join a multicast group.

null

MEDIUM

camel.source.endpoint.noReplyLogLevel

If sync is enabled this option dictates NettyConsumer which logging level to use when logging a there is no reply to send back. One of: [TRACE] [DEBUG] [INFO] [WARN] [ERROR] [OFF]

"WARN"

MEDIUM

camel.source.endpoint.serverClosedChannelException CaughtLogLevel

If the server (NettyConsumer) catches an java.nio.channels.ClosedChannelException then its logged using this logging level. This is used to avoid logging the closed channel exceptions, as clients can disconnect abruptly and then cause a flood of closed exceptions in the Netty server. One of: [TRACE] [DEBUG] [INFO] [WARN] [ERROR] [OFF]

"DEBUG"

MEDIUM

camel.source.endpoint.serverExceptionCaughtLog Level

If the server (NettyConsumer) catches an exception then its logged using this logging level. One of: [TRACE] [DEBUG] [INFO] [WARN] [ERROR] [OFF]

null

MEDIUM
