Does having VIP for kafka and zookeeper servers work?

Expert Contributor

Hi,

 

I have created two different vip's for kafka brokers and zookeeper servers. How do i test if the VIP's are working? Does this work?

Kafka isn't designed to work with VIP's or load balancers. It handles the load balancing itself when a client requests the metadata, and how the partitions/leaders are distributed amongst nodes. What are you trying to accomplish?
