How does Kafka message compression feature work?

Kafka message compression feature reduces the size of messages by using compression algorithms, saving storage space and network bandwidth. Kafka supports various compression algorithms such as gzip, snappy, and lz4.

When sending messages to Kafka, you have the option to enable message compression. If compression is enabled, Kafka will compress the message data before writing it to disk. Consumers receiving messages will automatically decompress the data when reading.

The selection of compression algorithms can be configured based on the application scenario and requirements. Different compression algorithms have different compression rates and performance, so the most suitable algorithm can be chosen according to the actual situation.

In general, Kafka message compression feature improves performance and saves resources by compressing message data using compression algorithms.
