I am currently trying to use osquery to produce data into Kafka as a producer and I get an error 'could not autoload extensions: failed reading...'

Hi @Kieran r, I have a few questions, hopefully I can help. I assume you are running into a problem using the Kafka logger plugin? What exactly does your configuration look like and what steps have you followed thus far? The log message you are referencing: "Could not autoload extensions" is a verbose message, not an error. If you are not intending to use extensions (you most likely are not) then it can be safely ignored. It most likely looks similar to:
Copy code
I0114 17:48:18.285985 186105280 extensions.cpp:337] Could not autoload extensions: Failed reading: /root/fake
If you look the initial
means this message is informational, if you see a log message that starts with an
that is an error. It might help if you shared all of the log messages you see.

Hi theopolis, I was trying to use the Kafka extension on windows but it seems from some research, the extension does not yet exist
The configuration I had worked on MacOS but on Windows, lacked the extension. Thanks for the information regarding the logs
