The Pitfalls of Kafka

Apache Kafka is a powerful data streaming platform, but it comes with many limitations. Operating Kafka at petabyte scale requires significant amounts of operational overhead and manual intervention.

About The White Paper

In this white paper, we present some of the challenges DevOps teams face implementing Kafka as a data streaming platform. We’ll discuss the fundamental challenges with Kafka’s design, the impact that its constraints have on high-throughput applications, and the difficulty in optimizing Kafka around these constraints.

Our most important concerns in scaling Kafka are:

300x300-LogDNA-Scaling-Downstream

 

 Scaling downstream consumers efficiently
300x300-LogDNA-Redistributing

 

 Redistributing work between consumers
300x300-LogDNA-Handling-Unexpected

 

 Handling unexpected interactions between downstream consumers and live data

 

The information in this eBook is based on this webinar presented by Engineering Manager, Muaz Siddiqui.
This white paper assumes a working knowledge of Kafka 2.0.X or higher.
