Apache Kafka is a popular open source data streaming platform providing high-throughput data pipelines. As such, Instana has included comprehensive Kafka Monitoring in our Infrastructure and Application Monitoring solution. Instana discovers all Kafka instances present in the environment, understands the dependencies and interactions between the cluster and its servers, and automatically begins monitoring the health and performance of each instance.
To help DevOps optimize their Kafka clusters, Instana applies automation and artificial intelligence to Kafka performance and health monitoring, including predictive problem detection and AI-assisted root cause analysis. Instana reduces your need for explicit Kafka expertise within operations.
