Kafka Manager vs KafkaCenter: What are the differences?
What is Kafka Manager? A tool for managing Apache Kafka, developed by Yahoo. This interface makes it easier to identify topics which are unevenly distributed across the cluster or have partition leaders unevenly distributed across the cluster. It supports management of multiple clusters, preferred replica election, replica re-assignment, and topic creation. It is also great for getting a quick bird’s eye view of the cluster.
What is KafkaCenter? A unified one-stop platform for Kafka cluster management and maintenance. It is a unified one-stop platform for Kafka cluster management and maintenance, producer / consumer monitoring, and use of ecological components.
Kafka Manager and KafkaCenter can be categorized as "Kafka" tools.
Some of the features offered by Kafka Manager are:
- Manage multiple clusters
- Easy inspection of cluster state (topics, brokers, replica distribution, partition distribution)
- Run preferred replica election
On the other hand, KafkaCenter provides the following key features:
- View kafka cluster list and monitoring information
- Users can view their own topics in this module, apply for new topics, mock and consumption data
- Users can view the production and consumption of topics in this module, and set warning information for consumption delays
Kafka Manager and KafkaCenter are both open source tools. It seems that Kafka Manager with 8.86K GitHub stars and 2.14K forks on GitHub has more adoption than KafkaCenter with 536 GitHub stars and 62 GitHub forks.
