Troubleshooting KSQL Executions

Robin Moffatt shows us some of the tools available for researching problems with KSQL queries executed against a server:

What does any self-respecting application need? Metrics! We need to know how many messages have been processed, when the last message was processed and so on.

The simplest option for gathering these metrics comes from within KSQL itself, using the same DESCRIBE EXTENDED command that we saw before:

ksql> DESCRIBE EXTENDED GOOD_RATINGS;
[...]
Local runtime statistics
------------------------
messages-per-sec:      1.10 total-messages:     2898 last-message: 9/17/18 1:48:47 PM UTC failed-messages:         0 failed-messages-per-sec:         0 last-failed: n/a
(Statistics of the local KSQL server interaction with the Kafka topic GOOD_RATINGS)
ksql>

You can get more details, including explain plans, from this.  There are external tools which Robin demonstrates as well, which let you track the streams over time.
