KAKFA service installation in Cloudera Manager

Hi sir,

 

I have a question on installing the Kafka in the cloudera quickstart vm.

 

I)Installed the Kafka parcel, distributed and activated in the single node cluster in the quickstart vm.

2)In the cloudera manager while selecting the Kafka and continue and in the service i could see the below two text box asking me to populate .what need to be populated.

 

please help me what things i need to update in the below two before start Kafka service.

 

Destination Broker List
bootstrap.servers
 
Source Broker List
source.bootstrap.servers
 
Note:

in the system host-name = quickstart.cloudera.

In the Kafka service in cloudera manager ,TCP Port ----> Kafka Broker Default Group is 9092

In the Kafka service in cloudera manager , TLS/SSL Port ---> Kafka Broker Default Group is 9093
 
Thanks
Anbu

Hi @anbazhagan_muth 

You don't need to worry about those two configurations unless you're using Kafka MirrorMaker:

Destination Broker List
bootstrap.servers
 
Source Broker List
source.bootstrap.servers

The Kafka MirrorMaker is used to replicate data from one Kafka service to the other. With that said, the configurations should be self explanatory, where the source broker list (source.bootstrap.servers) is the list of your brokers in the source Kafka service the MirroMaker is going to read data from, and the destination broker list (bootstrap.servers) is the list of brokers in your destination Kafka service where the MirrorMaker is going to write the data to. 

This is a comma separated list and the format would be something like:

BROKER1_HOSTNAME:PORT_NUMBER, BROKER2_HOSTNAME:PORT_NUMBER

PORT_NUMBER is going to be either 9092 for PLAINTEXT or SASL_PLAINTEXT, or 9093 for SSL or SASL_SSL.
