Monitoring Kafka cluster replications (SRM)
Get started with monitoring Streams Replication Manager (SRM) using Streams Messaging Manager (SMM).
SRM is an enterprise-grade replication solution that enables fault tolerant, scalable and robust cross-cluster Kafka topic replication. SRM provides the ability to dynamically change configurations and keeps the topic properties in sync across clusters at high performance. SRM also delivers custom extensions that facilitate installation, management and monitoring making SRM a complete replication solution that is built for mission critical workloads.
SMM is capable of integrating with SRM enabling you to monitor your SRM replications on the SMM UI. You can monitor status of the Kafka cluster replications, number of topics associated with the replication, throughput, replication latency, and checkpoint latency. Additionally, the alerting features of SMM are also supported for replications. This allows you to create receive alerts in connection to your replications.
The following tasks and concepts walk you through the Cluster Replications section of the SMM UI, which is your main hub in CDP where you view and monitor details regarding your SRM replications.
