Unable to change Kafka property num.network.threads from default 3.

Solved Go to solution

Unable to change Kafka property num.network.threads from default 3.

Explorer

We use Cloudera Enterprise 5.7.1 and Cloudera Manager 5.8.

 

I am trying to increase the Kafka's num.network.threads property value from 3 to 8. But I am unable to find it in Cloudera Manager Configuration page for Kafka.

 

Any pointers on how to change this value ?

 

Thanks,

Vivek

Master Guru
Assuming you want to set this on Brokers, you may append it in the syntax shown below into the UI field of CM -> Kafka -> Configuration -> "Kafka Broker Advanced Configuration Snippet (Safety Valve) for kafka.properties":

num.network.threads=8

For understanding these fields better, please read our Custom Configuration CM feature documentation at http://www.cloudera.com/documentation/enterprise/latest/topics/cm_mc_config_snippet.html
