Koupler

This project provides TCP, HTTP, UDP and Pipe interaces for Amazon's Kinesis. Underneath the covers, it uses the Kinesis Producer Library (KPL). The daemon listens on TCP/UDP/HTTP, or takes input from a pipe. Regardless of the mode, it handles the stream line-by-line, splitting the line based on the delimiter supplied, and then uses the specified field as the Kinesis partition key and queues the message with KPL.

Koupler also tracks metrics using Coda Hale's most excellent metrics library. Those metrics are then published up to Amazon's cloudwatch, allowing you to see per host behavior and throughput information. For more information, see the metrics section below.

Building

Koupler uses gradle as its build system. To build kouple with gradle, run the following:

   gradle clean dist

This will build a zip-file artifact in build/distributions.

Unzip that file with:

   unzip build/distribution/*.zip

And you are ready to use koupler.

Usage

After a successful build, simply run the following to get usage information:

  $./koupler.sh 

You should see the following:

   $ ./koupler.sh
   Must specify either: udp, tcp or pipe
   Must specify stream name.
   usage: java -jar koupler*.jar
    -delimiter <arg>          delimiter between fields (default: ',')
    -partitionKeyField <arg>  zero-based index of field containing partition key (default: 0)
    -format <arg>             format for which partitionKey will be extracted (default: split)
    -pipe                     pipe mode
    -port <arg>               listening port (default: 4242)
    -propertiesFile <arg>     kpl properties file (default: ./conf/kpl.properties)
    -streamName <arg>         kinesis stream name
    -tcp                      tcp mode
    -http                     http mode
    -udp                      udp mode

The parameters are fairly straight-forward, but be sure to have a look at conf/kpl.properties. Also, you can control logging levels by changing conf/log4j2.xml.

The Consumer

To kick the tires a bit, you can start the built-in consumer. The built-in consumer will output messages from the stream to the console.

   $ ./koupler.sh -consumer -streamName  boneill-dev-test
   [INFO] 2015-10-14 23:36:43,254 producer.KinesisProducerConfiguration.fromPropertiesFile - Attempting to load config from file ./conf/kpl.properties
   [2015-10-14 23:36:43.583341] [0x00007fff7120e000] [info] [metrics_manager.h:148] Uploading metrics to monitoring.us-east-1.amazonaws.com:443
   [INFO] 2015-10-14 23:36:43,915 producer.KinesisProducerConfiguration.fromPropertiesFile - Attempting to load config from file ./conf/kpl.properties
   ...
   INFO: Initializing shard shardId-000000000000 with TRIM_HORIZON

TCP

Next, fire up the TCP server and throw some data at it! The following is an example command-line.

   $ ./koupler.sh -tcp -streamName boneill-dev-test

You can sling data at the TCP listener with the following:

   $ telnet localhost 4242
   Trying ::1...
   Connected to localhost.
   Escape character is '^]'.
   lisa
   collin
   owen

And in the consumer you should see:

   [DEBUG] 2015-10-14 23:50:24,456 koupler.KinesisEventConsumer.processRecords - Received [lisa]
   [DEBUG] 2015-10-14 23:50:24,456 koupler.KinesisEventConsumer.processRecords - Received [collin]
   [DEBUG] 2015-10-14 23:50:24,456 koupler.KinesisEventConsumer.processRecords - Received [owen]

UDP

Next, fire up the UDP server! The following is an example command-line.

   $ ./koupler.sh -udp -streamName boneill-dev-test

You can sling data at the UDP listener with the following:

   $ nc -u localhost 4242
   murphy
   bailey

HTTP

Next, fire up the HTTP server! The server takes a POST, and queues the body of the HTTP request. The following is an example command-line.

   $ ./koupler.sh -http -streamName boneill-dev-test

You can sling data at the HTTP listener with the following:

   $ curl -d "drago" http://localhost:4567/event
   ACK

Pipe

Finally, for those that like pipes, we have the always versatile pipe version:

   $ printf "hello\nworld\n" | ./koupler.sh -pipe -streamName boneill-dev-test

   [DEBUG] 2015-10-15 00:18:05,704 koupler.Koupler.call - Queueing event [world]

Metrics

Koupler keeps track of following metrics. These metrics are available in CloudWatch under 'Custom Metrics', and lets you see status by host. Use the "-metrics" switch to enable.

Metric Description
BytesPerEvent Average bytes per event / message
CompletedEventsPerSecond Events per second successfully ack'd by Kinesis
QueuedEventsPerSecond Events per second queued with the Kinesis Producer Library (KPL)
EventQueueCount The size of the queue/backlog within KPL
