Where does a new Consumer ID start to consume?

Last Updated: Feb 24, 2018
  • If this Consumer ID is started for the first time, then it ignores messages sent before, namely historical messages, and consumes the messages sent after the Consumer ID is started.
  • If this Consumer ID is started for the second time, then it consumes from the last consumption.
  • To consume from a specific time point, use the Reset Consumer Offset function of the MQ console to specify a starting point of consumption. Each reset only affects the specified Topic under the specified Consumer ID, rather than other Consumer IDs.
