I'm just curious and also unsure... When I'm creating a cluster (in this case, 3 kafka hosts and zookeeper), should I be adding the SCM host to this cluster as well, or does that operate separately?
I've read that each cluster should have a Master host, Utility host (with cloudera manager), and 3 worker hosts. Is it a bad idea to add the host that is running SCM to my new cluster, or should I leave it separate? I've noticed that when I add the SCM host to a cluster, it is using a LOT of memory by default, which leads me to think that I should not add the SCM host to the new cluster.
