Thanks for confirming, but that not behavior I observe. My consumer does
not commit data to kafka. It get messages sent to kafka. Once restarted I
should of gotten  messages that previously received by consumer, but on
contrarily I got none. Logs confirm the initial offset been as -1. What am
I doing wrong?
