Confluent Platform offers intuitive GUIs for managing and monitoring Apache Kafka®. These tools allow developers and operators to centrally manage and control key components of the platform, maintain and optimize cluster health, and use intelligent alerts to reduce downtime by identifying potential issues before they occur.
For those who want to leverage a cloud-based monitoring and alerting solution, you can ensure system health and high availability using Health+. Read the announcement blog.
Control Center is a self-hosted GUI with expert-designed dashboards to enable centralized management and monitoring of key components of the platform, including clusters, brokers, schemas, topics, messages, connectors, ksqlDB queries, security, replication and more.
Health+ is a Confluent-hosted, web-based GUI that offers intelligent alerting and monitoring tools to reduce the risk of downtime, streamline troubleshooting, surface key metrics, and accelerate issue resolution. It helps offload monitoring costs related to storing historical data and is built on Confluent’s deep understanding of data in motion infrastructure.
Observe and control messages, topics, and Schema Registry, all in a centralized way with a single Kafka UI:
Centrally manage all your connectors that are built on the Kafka Connect framework in one place:
Integrate with ksqlDB so that you and your developers can:
Simplify security management for the entire organization through integration with RBAC. This allows you to view and manage access permissions for yourself and others.
Simplify at-scale operations using a centralized dashboard to view broker configurations and modify them dynamically without resorting to rolling restarts.
Centralize operations not only for multiple Kafka clusters, but also for multiple Connect, ksqlDB, and Schema Registry clusters.
Track the key performance indicators for Apache Kafka. Use intuitive charts to track and receive alerts for:
View all your critical health metrics over time through a self-hosted or scalable, cloud-based solution. Gain visibility into:
Monitor replication tasks directly from the GUI through integration with Multi-Region Clusters and Replicator. This allows you to track key metrics such as throughput and lag.
Keep your clusters running smoothly and ensure high availability with intelligent alerts based on expert-tested rules and algorithms.
Optimize your deployments based on best practices from the inventors of Apache Kafka, tuned from managing over 5,000 clusters in Confluent Cloud.
Expedite issue resolution time through a streamlined support experience by providing Confluent experts with secure access to historical metadata without manual data entry.
