Monitor your Kafka ecosystem efficiently, get alerted to problems, and swiftly identify the root cause of production issues with our easy-to-use, affordable Kafka monitoring tool. Go beyond open source Kafka monitoring tools, streamline operations, and optimize the way your engineering teams use Kafka.
Just enable JMX in your Kafka broker and start monitoring 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.
Kafka gives out plenty of metrics. Applications Manager helps you monitor the important ones related to Kafka broker, producer, consumer, resource utilization, Zookeeper, etc.
With Applications Manager's Kafka 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.
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 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.
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.
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.
You can use Applications Manager to monitor Kafka performance and the performance of related technologies such as Apache Zookeeper as well as other applications and infrastructure components. Applications Manager provides out-of-the-box monitoring and alerting for 150+ applications and infrastructure elements - both cloud native as well as on premise.

Kafka monitoring is the process of supervising the resource usage and underlying operations in Kafka, to ensure its performance isn't affected. Kafka has grown considerably in terms of both volume and complexity, and being a crucial component in the IT infrastructure, it's necessary to implement a dedicated kafka monitoring software—like ManageEngine Applications Manager—to track its operations, identify and resolve bottlenecks, and optimize the performance.
Applications Manager's Kafka monitoring starts at $395/year to monitor up to 10 Kafka clusters. It is one of the most cost-effective monitoring solutions for your business and enables you to scale your monitoring as your Kafka deployment grows in size.
It is easy to set up Kafka monitoring with Applications Manager. Just enable JMX on the Kafka broker and set up the Kafka monitor in Applications Manager by specifying the JMX credentials such as username, password, JMX port and JNDI path.
You can collect detailed metrics related to the health and performance of all the components of your Kafka cluster such as:
