Tuning Kafka

Looking to take your skills to the next level with Apache Kafka? If you’re an experienced Kafka user, you probably already know that the performance of your Kafka environment is affected by many factors. But how do you tune them? In this course, instructor Janani Ravi shows you how to fine-tune Kafka using the Kafka optimization theorem and other powerful tuning tools.

Get an introduction to Kafka tuning, how it affects producers and consumers, and how to set up Kafka on your machine so you can start publishing messages. Explore the basics of tuning Kafka producers such as running a cluster with multiple brokers, running performance tests, partitioning, replication, compression, batch size, and more. Discover the essentials of tuning Kafka consumers with basic performance tests, fetch bytes and wait time, session timeout, max poll intervals and records, end-to-end latency, and throughput. By the end of this course, you’ll also be prepared to run performance tests using Python.
