Hi@akhtar,

In Kafka, each topic is divided into a set of logs known as partitions. Producers write to the tail of these logs and consumers read the logs at their own pace. To create a Kafka consumer, you can run the below command.

$ bin/kafka-console-consumer.sh --bootstrap-server localhost:9092 --topic topic-edu
