ApsaraMQ for Kafka:View partition status

Last Updated:Dec 08, 2023

In ApsaraMQ for Kafka, a partition is used to store messages, and each topic consists of one or more partitions. The status of a partition includes the message volume, maximum offset, and minimum offset of the partition. If exceptions such as message accumulation and high disk usage occur in an ApsaraMQ for Kafka cluster, you can view the status of each partition in the cluster to check the message volume on the broker and the consumer progress of each partition to troubleshoot the exceptions.
