Save time with agentless Kafka monitoring

Just enable JMX in your Kafka broker and start monitoring Kafka in Applications Manager by providing the necessary credentials. No need to install or maintain agents. No need to set up separate integrations for alerting and visualization.

Monitor key Kafka performance metrics

Kafka gives out plenty of metrics. From Applications Manager's Kafka monitoring dashboard, monitor the important performance metrics related to Kafka broker, producer, consumer, resource utilization, Zookeeper, etc.

Avoid overloading of resources

With Applications Manager's Apache Kafka performance monitoring feature, automatically discover and monitor Kafka servers, track resource utilization details, such as memory, CPU, and disk growth to identify idle or unused resources and also ensure you don't run out of resources. Our Kafka monitoring software will help you make sure your Kafka server is operating as expected at all times. Get alerts when there is a sudden surge in resource consumption or unusual patterns.

Keep tabs on threads and JVM usage

Kafka relies on Java garbage collection processes to free up memory since it runs on the Java Virtual Machine (JVM). With our Kafka monitoring system, track JVM heap sizes to identify any out of memory errors, memory leaks, and other such issues that may occur. Our Kafka performance monitoring tool also enables you to track thread usage with Kafka performance metrics like daemon, peak, and live thread count to prevent performance bottlenecks such as threads overloading the server's memory, thread deadlocks, and thread starvation.

Gain insights into broker, controller, and replication statistics

  • Monitor active controllers to discover which broker was the controller at the time the issue occurred as well as the exact count of offline partitions using Applications Manager's Kafka monitoring software.
  • Monitor the broker's log flush latency; the longer it takes to flush logs to a disk, the more the pipeline backs up.
  • Track under-replicated partitions to see if replication is going as fast as configured.

Monitor network and topic details

Get a full picture of the network usage on your host and track network throughput or aggregate incoming and outgoing byte rate on your broker topics to locate potential bottlenecks with Applications Manager's Kafka monitor. Make informed decisions such as enabling end-to-end compression of your messages.

Become aware of Kafka performance problems in real time

  • Set up alerts quickly. Choose from threshold based alerts or alerts based on anomaly detection.
  • Trigger alerts in real time when any Kafka component goes down or for problems such as consumer lag, offline partitions, and much more.
  • Get notified in the medium of your choice (email, text or Slack channels).
  • Propagate alerts to external incident management tools such as ServiceNow and ManageEngine ServiceDesk Plus.
  • Respond quickly to incidents by automating corrective actions. Automate tasks using web hooks to start external actions.

Gain insights into trends with our Kafka monitoring dashboards

Applications Manager provides extensive reports on all important performance attributes. With these reports, you can analyze the historical trends of various Kafka monitoring metrics to make informed decisions. Predict growth and utilization trends using machine learning techniques, which help during capacity planning.
