This plugins allows to define a distributed stream of events published by Gerrit.
Events can be anything, from the traditional stream events to the Gerrit metrics.
This plugin requires Gerrit 2.13 or later.
Kafka plugin can be build as a regular ‘in-tree’ plugin. That means that is required to clone a Gerrit source tree first and then to have the Kafka plugin source directory into the /plugins path. The plugin depends on events-broker which is linked directly from source with the same ‘in-tree’ plugin structure.
Additionally, the plugins/external_plugin_deps.bzl file needs to be updated to match the Kafka plugin one.
git clone --recursive https://gerrit.googlesource.com/gerrit git clone https://gerrit.googlesource.com/plugins/events-kafka gerrit/plugins/events-kafka git clone https://gerrit.googlesource.com/modules/events-broker gerrit/plugins/events-broker cd gerrit rm plugins/external_plugin_deps.bzl ln -s ./events-kafka/external_plugin_deps.bzl plugins/.
To build the events-kafka plugins, issue the command from the Gerrit source path:
bazel build plugins/events-kafka
The output is created in
Assuming a running Kafka broker on the same Gerrit host, add the following settings to gerrit.config:
[plugin "events-kafka"] bootstrapServers = localhost:9092
