Command utility for the Greenplum-Kafka Integration.


gpkafka check

gpkafka help

gpkafka load

gpkafka {-h | --help}

gpkafka --version


Note: Starting in Greenplum Database version 5.16, gpkafka is a wrapper around the Greenplum Stream Server (GPSS) gpss and gpsscli utilities. If you want to use encryption, you must explicitly start a Greenplum Stream Server instance with the gpss command use the gpsscli subcommands, not gpkafka, to submit and manage the load job.

Pivotal recommends that you migrate to using the GPSS utilities directly.

The Greenplum-Kafka Integration includes the gpkafka command utility. gpkafka provides subcommands to load Kafka data into Greenplum Database and to view load history:

  • gpkafka load - load data from a single Kafka topic into a Greenplum Database table
  • gpkafka check - check the history of a load operation
  • gpkafka help - display command help


-h | --help
Show gpkafka help, and then exit.
Show the version of gpkafka, and then exit.
