A new press release reports, “Pepperdata, the leader in Analytics Stack Performance (ASP), today announced the availability of Streaming Spotlight, a new product in Pepperdata’s data analytics performance suite. The suite is purpose-built for IT operations teams, giving them a single, comprehensive view of their analytics stack, both in the cloud and on premises. With Streaming Spotlight, existing customers can integrate Kafka monitoring metrics into the Pepperdata dashboard, adding detailed visibility into Kafka cluster metrics, broker health, topics and partitions. Kafka is a distributed event streaming platform and acts as the central hub for an integrated set of messaging systems. Kafka’s architecture of brokers, topics and data replication supports high availability, high-throughput and publish-subscribe environments. For some users, Kafka handles trillions of messages per day. Managing these data pipelines and systems is complex and requires deep insight to ensure these systems run at optimal efficiency.”
The release continues, “Gartner confirms organizations are shifting from traditional processing on databases and batch to a streaming-first approach. Organizations moving to streaming architectures are quickly adopting Kafka for microservices communication, leading to an increased need to monitor Kafka’s overall performance. To make Kafka monitoring simpler, Pepperdata’s Streaming Spotlight provides visibility into brokers and topics, and enables users to quickly resolve any issues by correlating host metrics. Pepperdata customers report the ability to track the right metrics, and then integrate those metrics as part of their overall big data analytics stack, is integral to their ongoing IT operations success.”
