Kafka mirror maker deployment

Kafka mirror maker deployment

Explorer

I have a Kafka cluster composed by 5 brokers and 4 mirror maker to mirror date from 2 different data centers. I know that a kafka broker requires its own dedicated hardware especially because of the high disk I/O, memory usage and CPU intensive application.

I would like to know if could make sense to deploy a mirror maker process on a node that is even a Kafka broker or if I should consider to have the mirror maker on:

- a dedicated node

- a node which hostes a zookeeper server

 

HDFS and others cloudera services are deployed on different nodes.

Thanks in advance,

Beniamino

For a basic setup you can have it on the same node (e.g. for testing or low volume usage). 

 

Please see the below considerations when deploying services into nodes:
