Kafka Cluster Consumer Group Metrics at the Partition Level

I would like to monitor Kafka consumer group metrics such as current offset, log end offset, lag, throughput, etc., at the partition level.

This would be similar to the metrics provided by the CLI tool:

▶ bin/ --bootstrap-server localhost:9092 --describe --group my-group

This feature would be extremely helpful in identifying partition imbalances, such as when a single partition is receiving a disproportionate amount of data.
