Verifying record processing

Determine if the connector is processing records.

Is the connector running

To determine if the connector is running, check the log for commit offset messages. A commit offset message is logged every 10 seconds. It confirms that the instance (for example dse-sink-2-0) is running and processing records. The connector writes back to a Kafka offset topic to ensure that tasks continue where they left off after a rebalancing or restart.

Example commit offset message:
INFO WorkerSinkTask{id=dse-sink-2-0} Committing offsets asynchronously using sequence
          number 240: {tick-stream-json-0=OffsetAndMetadata{offset=5000000, metadata=''},
          tick-stream-json-2=OffsetAndMetadata{offset=5000000, metadata=''},
          tick-stream-json-1=OffsetAndMetadata{offset=3000000, metadata=''},
          tick-stream-json-4=OffsetAndMetadata{offset=7000000, metadata=''},
          tick-stream-json-3=OffsetAndMetadata{offset=7000000, metadata=''},
          tick-stream-json-6=OffsetAndMetadata{offset=6000000, metadata=''},
          tick-stream-json-5=OffsetAndMetadata{offset=6000000, metadata=''},
          tick-stream-json-8=OffsetAndMetadata{offset=6000000, metadata=''},
          tick-stream-json-7=OffsetAndMetadata{offset=7000000, metadata=''},
          tick-stream-json-9=OffsetAndMetadata{offset=8000000, metadata=''}}
          (org.apache.kafka.connect.runtime.WorkerSinkTask:325)

Records written to DataStax Enterprise database

The connector uses the DataStax Enterprise (DSE) Java driver to send write requests to the corresponding tables. To verify the number of records processed:
