Kafka Connection

Kafka Connection

The Kafka connection is a Messaging connection. Use the Kafka connection to access an Apache Kafka broker as a source or a target. You can create and manage a Kafka connection in the Developer tool or through infacmd.
The Kafka broker maintains configuration information in Apache ZooKeeper. Apache ZooKeeper is a centralized service that maintains the configuration information of the Apache brokers.
When you configure a Kafka connection, you configure the following properties:
  • The list of Kafka brokers that the connection reads from or writes to.
  • The list of ZooKeeper hosts that maintain the configuration.
  • The number of seconds the Integration Service attempts to reconnect to the database if the connection fails.
