The offset is an uncomplicated integer number that is employed by Kafka to preserve the current position of a consumer. The current offset is a director to the latest record that Kafka has sent to a consumer in the most current poll and the offset is a position within a partition for the subsequent message to be sent to a customer. Kafka maintains two sorts of offsets; current offset and committed offset.
