The kafkaproducer plugin is a northbound plugin which allows real-time data streaming from OpenDaylight into a Kafka endpoints. The key design goal for this plugin is to provide a generic and configurable data connector that subscribes to southbound event source(s), for example using OpenDaylight’s Event Topic Broker (ETB), which then forwards these notifications to a Kafka endpoint/s.


The kafkaplugin is configurable via REST/java apis in ODL. Initial configuration supports multiple endpoints, Event Topic Broker topic-id, and multiple serialisation/codec formats and other features.
