Kafka spool log files

Kafka spool log files

Contributor

Hi,

I found following log files in /var/log/log_hadoop/log/kafka/audit/hdfs/spool/archive path and these are taking lot of space. What are these files? Can I delete these files? How to control it?

11G spool_kafka_20171023-0406.30.log

That's the Ranger Kafka Plugin logging HDFS auditing. https://github.com/apache/ranger/blob/master/plugin-kafka/scripts/install.properties#L65

Log into Ranger Admin UI if you want to disable it.

Can we delete these files?

Do you need auditing in your system, then no.

If not, then yes, and why did you have it enabled?
