connector.class=io.confluent.connect.hdfs.HdfsSinkConnector

Connector-specific configuration properties are described below.

HDFS

  • Type: string
  • Default: “”
  • Importance: high
connect.hdfs.keytab

  • Type: string
  • Default: “”
  • Importance: high
kerberos.ticket.renew.period.ms

The period in milliseconds to renew the Kerberos ticket.

  • Type: long
  • Default: 3600000
  • Importance: low

Connector

format.class

The format class to use when writing data to the store. Format classes implement the io.confluent.connect.storage.format.Format interface.

  • Type: class
  • Default: io.confluent.connect.hdfs.avro.AvroFormat
  • Importance: high

These classes are available by default:

  • io.confluent.connect.hdfs.avro.AvroFormat
  • io.confluent.connect.hdfs.json.JsonFormat
  • io.confluent.connect.hdfs.orc.OrcFormat
  • io.confluent.connect.hdfs.parquet.ParquetFormat
  • io.confluent.connect.hdfs.string.StringFormat
flush.size

Number of records written to store before invoking file commits.

  • Type: int
  • Importance: high

Important

Rotation strategy logic: In the following rotation strategies, the logic to flush files to storage is triggered when a new record arrives, after the defined interval or scheduled interval time. Flushing files is also triggered periodically by the offset.flush.interval.ms setting defined in the Connect worker configuration. The offset.flush.interval.ms setting defaults to 60000 ms (60 seconds). If you enable the properties rotate.interval.ms or rotate.schedule.interval.ms and ingestion rate is low, you should set offset.flush.interval.ms to a smaller value so that records flush at the rotation interval (or close to the interval) . Leaving the offset.flush.interval.ms set to the default 60 seconds may cause records to stay in an open file for longer than expected, if no new records get processed that trigger rotation.

rotate.interval.ms

The time interval in milliseconds to invoke file commits. This configuration ensures that file commits are invoked every configured interval. This configuration is useful when data ingestion rate is low and the connector didn’t write enough messages to commit files. The default value -1 means that this feature is disabled.

  • Type: long
  • Default: -1
  • Importance: high
rotate.schedule.interval.ms

The time interval in milliseconds to periodically invoke file commits. This configuration ensures that file commits are invoked every configured interval. Time of commit will be adjusted to 00:00 of selected timezone. Commit will be performed at scheduled time regardless previous commit time or number of messages. This configuration is useful when you have to commit your data based on current server time, like at the beginning of every hour. The default value -1 means that this feature is disabled.

  • Type: long
  • Default: -1
  • Importance: medium

The following Avro converter properties can be used in the connector configuration:

schema.cache.config

The size of the schema cache used in the Avro converter.

  • Type: int
  • Default: 1000
  • Importance: low
enhanced.avro.schema.support

Enable enhanced Avro schema support in the Avro Converter. When set to true, this property preserves Avro schema package information and Enums when going from Avro schema to Connect schema. This information is added back in when going from Connect schema to Avro schema.

  • Type: boolean
  • Default: false
  • Importance: low
connect.meta.data

Allow the Connect converter to add its metadata to the output schema.

  • Type: boolean
  • Default: true
  • Importance: low

The connect.meta.data property preserves the following Connect schema metadata when going from Connect schema to Avro schema. The following metadata is added back in when going from Avro schema to Connect schema.

  • doc
  • version
  • parameters
  • default value
  • name
  • type

For detailed information and configuration examples for Avro converters listed above, see Using Kafka Connect with Schema Registry.

Example config value of ([a-zA-Z]*)_([a-zA-Z]*) will match topics that are two words delimited by an underscore and will capture each word separately. With topic.dir = ${1}/${2}, a record from the topic example_name will be written into a subdirectory of example/name/. By default, this functionality is not enabled.
