  • 50+ out-of-the-box connectors
  • Easy to use, native integration
  • Manage and curate customer connectors

Real-time Monitoring for Real-time Peace of Mind

Reveal the State of Your Apache Kafka Cluster

Designed for an event streaming platform, Control Center monitors and reports the most critical inputs and signals related to health, availability, and scalability of the Apache Kafka cluster. The out-of-the-box dashboard allows you to:

  • See the health of the cluster
  • Monitor the end to end performance of the producer to consumer cycle
  • View the broker and cluster resource utilization

Know the State of All Messages

Operators need to ensure that systems are built to deliver on the promises of data availability and business SLAs. Control Center provides the only solution that monitors end-to-end delivery assurance for streams of events, streaming applications, and microservices for all Kafka clients and in every language.

Confluent Control Center gives understanding into the following:

  • Message delivery
  • Message delivery latency
  • Throughput and consumer lag
  • Missing, duplicate and delayed events via alerts

Operations Virtual Assistant

Optimize Configurations with Ease

With over 150 broker configurations and 27 topic overrides, properly configuring and maintaining the Kafka cluster can be challenging and time-consuming. Control Center allows insight into the configurations currently in production, and recommends configuration parameter values to enhance the Kafka cluster.

Confluent Control Center gives the operator the following insights:

  • Most popular configuration
  • Interactions – impact of each configuration
  • Default configuration values
  • Recommended parameter values and predicted impact on configuration

Control Center provides detailed understanding at the configuration and topic level, so that operators can better manage and optimize the Kafka cluster for maximum availability, transient high-throughput, or infinite retention. Control Center empowers operators in their configuration changes, thereby reducing the risk of “trial and error” configurations.
