How to get consumer group offsets for partition in Golang Kafka 10


Now that Golang Kafka library (sarama) is providing consumer group capability without any external library help with kafka 10. How can I get the current message offset being processed by a consumer group at any given time ?

Previously I used kazoo-go ( to get my consumer group message offset as it is stored in Zookeeper. Now I use sarama-cluster (, I am not sure which API to use to get my consumer group message offset.


I am also working with Sarama and Kafka to get offset of a topic.

You can get offset with following code.

    package main

    import (

    func main(){
      client , err := sarama.Client([]string{"localhost:9092"},nil) // I am not giving any configuration
      if err != nil {
      lastoffset, err := client.GetOffset("topic-test",0,sarama.OffsetNewest)
      if err != nil {
      fmt.Println("Last Commited Offset ",lastoffset)

Let me know if this is the answer you are looking for and if it is helpful.
