Save time on setup and visualize your Kafka data in minutes with Datadog’s out-of-the-box dashboard. See your own metrics in Datadog’s Kafka dashboard in minutes.
Kafka performance is best tracked by focusing on the broker, producer, consumer, and ZooKeeper metric categories. As you build a dashboard to monitor Kafka, you’ll need to have a comprehensive implementation that covers all the layers of your deployment, including host-level metrics where appropriate, and not just the metrics emitted by Kafka itself. Datadog’s comprehensive Kafka dashboard displays key pieces of information for each metric category in a single pane of glass.
