Install Librdkafka

The probe has been tested with Librdkafka 0.9.4.

  1. Specify an installation path:

    export RDK_PREFIX=/usr/local
    

    In the example, the libs will actually be installed at /usr/local/lib; note that lib is appended to the prefix.

  2. Download, build, and install:

    wget https://github.com/edenhill/librdkafka/archive/v0.9.4.tar.gz  -O - | tar -xz
    cd librdkafka-0.9.4/
    ./configure --prefix=$RDK_PREFIX
    make 
    make install
    
  3. Ensure that the installation is on the search path for the runtime shared library loader:

    export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:$RDK_PREFIX/lib
