We have a 2 node test cluster where we Installed Kafka & Nifi.
Kafka brokers & Nifi running on both nodes .
I am very new to this setup. What ports need to be open.
How can a user access the cluster from his local machine and if possible can someone share a test from scratch.
I know my ask is too much. Its just that i want to get a good insight how this whole thing works and integrates.
I have gone through below article, but not sure where to start or how can i access kafka/nifi from my local machine:
The default ports are as follows
You can access NiFi via the Web UI running on port 8080.
You can access Kafka from your local machine, outside of a broker by downloading the kafka package for your respective Kafka broker version, then run a command like this to see all the topics in the cluster.
kafka-topics --list --zookeeper yourZkServer:2181
Perhaps, the Kafka Quickstart guide would be a good start for you. And you can extend that knowledge of produce/consume over to the NiFi UI. http://kafka.apache.org/quickstart
