Is your Kafka a black box?

 

Maintaining Apache Kafka in production is hard. It requires being able to answer hundreds of different questions:

  • Who are my consumers?
  • What lag do they have?
  • What data are my producers generating?
  • How are my partitions distributed?
  • And are my replicas in sync?

Why do you need monitoring for Kafka?

Developers, data engineers and SREs will lose time. Debugging a data pipeline or microservice will require connecting manually onto machines and jumping between different open-source tools.  Things that should take 10 seconds will end up taking hours. 

This will ultimately slow down your development and your adoption of Kafka

When is the time right to have this monitoring?

 

Right from the beginning of your Kafka project.  You must thing of having enterprise monitoring and visibility right from the beginning otherwise not only will it slow down your developers it will risk your Kafka project not being successful and all.
