Kafka for Kubernetes
This community seeks to provide:
- Production-worthy Kafka setup for persistent (domain- and ops-) data at small scale.
- Operational knowledge, biased towards resilience over throughput, as Kubernetes manifest.
- A platform for event-driven (streaming!) microservices design using Kubernetes.
To quote @arthurk:
thanks for creating and maintaining this Kubernetes files, they're up-to-date (unlike the kubernetes contrib files, don't require helm and work great!
We suggest you
apply -f manifests in the following order:
- Your choice of storage classes from ./configure
That'll give you client "bootstrap"
Our only dependency is
kubectl. Not because we dislike Helm or Operators, but because we think plain manifests make it easier to collaborate.
If you begin to rely on this kafka setup we recommend you fork, for example to edit broker config.
|4.x||1.9+||Kafka 1.1 dynamic config|
|v4.1||1.9+||Kafka 1.0.1 new default config|
|v3.2||1.9.4, 1.8.9, 1.7.14||Required for read-only ConfigMaps #162 #163 k8s #58720|
|v3.1||1.8||The painstaking path to
|v3.0||1.8||Outside access, modern manifests, bootstrap.kafka|
|v2.1||1.5||Kafka 1.0, the init script concept|
|v1.0||1||Stateful? In Kubernetes? In 2016? Yes.|
All available as releases.
Have a look at:
- or plain JMX
- what's happening in the monitoring label.
- Note that this repo is intentionally light on automation. We think every SRE team must build the operational knowledge first.
