Using Cloudera Streams Messaging Manager for Apache Kafka Monitoring, Management, Analytics and CRUD

Using Cloudera Streams Messaging Manager for Apache Kafka Monitoring, Management, Analytics and CRUD

SMM is powerful tool to work with Apache Kafka and provide you with monitoring, management, analytics and creating Kafka topics.   You will be able to monitor servers, brokers, consumers, producers, topics and messages.   You will also be able to easily build alerts based on various events that can occur with those entities.

From Cloudera Manager, we can now install and manage Kafka, SMM, NiFi and Hadoop services.


Let's create a Kafka topic, no command-line!





For a simple topic, we select Low size for replication factor of one and replica count of one.  We also set a cleanup policy of delete.



Let's create an alert.


For this one if the nifi-reader consumer group has a lag then send an email to me.


Let's browse our Kafka infrastructure in our AWS Cloudera Kafka cluster, so easy to navigate.



You can dive into a topic and see individual messages, see offsets, keys, values, timestamps and more.


Zoom into one message in a topic.


Let's analyze a topic's configuration.



The result of the alert we built is an email sent to me with this data:


Example Alert Sent

Notification id: 56d35dcc-8fc0-4c59-b70a-ccbd1bb35681,
Root resource name: nifi-reader,
Root resource type: CONSUMER,

Last updated timestamp: Thu Aug 22 18:42:41 UTC 2019 : 1566499361366, 
State: RAISED,

Message:
Alert policy : "ALERT IF ( CONSUMER (name="nifi-reader") CONSUMER_GROUP_LAG >= 100 )" has been evaluated to true Condition : "CONSUMER_GROUP_LAG>=100" has been evaluated to true for following CONSUMERS - CONSUMER = "nifi-reader" had following attribute values * CONSUMER_GROUP_LAG = 139

Ingesting Drone Data From DJII Ryze Tello Drones Part 1 - Setup and Practice

Ingesting Drone Data From DJII Ryze Tello Drones Part 1 - Setup and Practice In Part 1, we will setup our drone, our communication environment, capture the data and do initial analysis. We will eventually grab live video stream for object detection, real-time flight control and real-time data ingest of photos, videos and sensor readings. We will have Apache NiFi react to live situations facing the drone and have it issue flight commands via UDP. In this initial section, we will control the drone with Python which can be triggered by NiFi. Apache NiFi will ingest log data that is stored as CSV files on a NiFi node connected to the drone's WiFi. This will eventually move to a dedicated embedded device running MiniFi. This is a small personal drone with less than 13 minutes of flight time per battery. This is not a commercial drone, but gives you an idea of the what you can do with drones. Drone Live Communications for Sensor Readings and Drone Control You must connect t

Using Apache NiFi in OpenShift and Anywhere Else to Act as Your Global Integration Gateway

Using Apache NiFi in OpenShift and Anywhere Else to Act as Your Global Integration Gateway What does it look like? Where Can I Run This Magic Engine: Private Cloud, Public Cloud, Hybrid Cloud, VM, Bare Metal, Single Node, Laptop, Raspberry Pi or anywhere you have a 1GB of RAM and some CPU is a good place to run a powerful graphical integration and dataflow engine.   You can also run MiNiFi C++ or Java agents if you want it even smaller. Sounds Too Powerful and Expensive: Apache NiFi is Open Source and can be run freely anywhere. For What Use Cases: Microservices, Images, Deep Learning and Machine Learning Models, Structured Data, Unstructured Data, NLP, Sentiment Analysis, Semistructured Data, Hive, Hadoop, MongoDB, ElasticSearch, SOLR, ETL/ELT, MySQL CDC, MySQL Insert/Update/Delete/Query, Hosting Unlimited REST Services, Interactive with Websockets, Ingesting Any REST API, Natively Converting JSON/XML/CSV/TSV/Logs/Avro/Parquet, Excel, PDF, Word Documents, Syslog, Kafka, JMS, MQTT, TCP
