Share Article

Combines automation, deep instrumentation and data science for unprecedented visibility and automation

OpsClarity, a provider of intelligent monitoring solution for modern applications and data infrastructure, today announced its market-leading monitoring service for Apache Kafka. Kafka is a highly-popular distributed publish-subscribe messaging system for a variety of high-volume, fast-data applications. OpsClarity provides deep real-time understanding of Kafka and associated applications to enable early detection of issues and rapid root-cause analysis for mission critical environments.

OpsClarity provides a comprehensive and automated monitoring solution for the entire data pipeline, including data frameworks (such as Kafka, Apache Spark, and Hadoop), microservices, containers, and their underlying infrastructure. OpsClarity automatically discovers all Kafka components, including brokers, producers, consumers, and Zookeeper clusters, and has built-in plugins to monitor detailed performance metrics for each of them. to. Beyond Kafka, OpsClarity also builds a complete service map for rich context and correlates events across Kafka and other applications and infrastructure components for rapid troubleshooting.

“Enterprises are increasingly adopting Kafka to take advantage of streaming data and build more responsive businesses. But, DevOps teams face significant challenges operationalizing and scaling their Kafka and other data infrastructure given their complexity.”, said Alan Ngai, co-founder and CTO of OpsClarity. “OpsClarity provides deep operational insights into Kafka and leverages data-science to deliver fast and accurate root-cause analysis, enabling the teams to reliably operate their data pipelines. ”

While extremely efficient, Kafka can present monitoring challenges across a number of areas:

  •      Monitoring and correlating issues across multiple broker clusters, topics, and partitions
  • Detecting consumer lag across multiple consumer groups
  • Tracking operational performance across multiple versions of Kafka brokers and clients
