Confidence with Apache Kafka depends on engineers having unified visibility of real-time data & applications. Or you end up with whiplash from swivelling between so many screens and Kafka monitoring tools.
Infinite failure modes can impact the performance & availability of a Kafka streaming app.
Monitoring your Kafka infrastructure by looking into Replica Fetcher Threads and Disk Write wait times won’t save you if there’s schema drift, incorrect ACLs, maxed-out Quotas or poor partitioning.
When you have to troubleshoot a Kafka flow, where do you start to figure out what the heck is going on?
Apache Kafka is a complex a black box, requiring monitoring for many services including Schema Registry, Kafka Connect and real-time flows.
A Kafka UI to monitor consumer lag, partitioning, schemas & more, saving engineering from maintaining multiple tools.
Inspect data streams with SQL to understand how your microservice is behaving.
Metrics & real-time alerts on Kafka performance & streaming flows.
“Lenses is critical for us in making our teams productive with Kafka and giving confidence to hundreds of developers.”
VP of IT Engineering at Playtika - Ella Vidra
Monitor Kafka infrastructure & application performance from a single role-based and secured Kafka UI. Spinning up full-service visibility helps stay on top of your data and app health.
View & monitor streaming data pipelines via a Topology view that dynamically shows deployed Kafka Connect connectors and custom microservices connected to your topics.
Troubleshoot by exploring events using SQL via a Kafka GUI or API. Lenses intelligently understands your data regardless of serialization: Avro, Protobuf, JSON, CSV and more.
Get to that root-cause by viewing schemas, Quotas and ACLs all within a secured & unified Kafka UI and API.
