Dude, Where's My Event? Event Tracking at Scale

Complex systems, built on top of Kafka, frequently consist of many topics, between which events travel - they are, often conditionally, transformed, complemented, filtered or simply acted upon. It may become crucial to track and visualize that journey, either for business or debugging reasons. So how does one track a single event's journey through Kafka, among billions of them? Learn how we tackled this problem by implementing Event Tracking, a technique allowing our customers from the financial sector to precisely locate and visualize event's route within complicated Kafka flows.
