Apache Kafka is a complex system with multiple parameters to configure for different use cases. As a Consulting Engineer at Confluent, I can see many clients who need to benchmark their production systems and understand its capacity. Benchmark details can be used to optimize the throughput and better utilize resources. Benchmarking and measuring aren’t just for finding a bottleneck; they’re about trying to better understand the loads you’re placing on the system. This talk will focus on methods and tools of Apache Kafka performance analysis and benchmarking. It will be helpful to anyone trying to operate a large Apache Kafka cluster and achieve the throughput and latency goals.
