Agents registering to EFM

Learn about the estimated latencies and CPU usage when agents register to Edge Flow Manager (EFM) which is integrated with Kafka to store heartbeats and acknowledge requests.


Latencies are a bit higher compared to when Kafka is not present, but still within the range of 100 ms and 5 seconds.

CPU usage

CPU usage is higher as expected. As per the JVM, at the maximum level, approximately 50% of the available CPU is used, which is 3 cores. Compared to the configuration without Kafka that means 50% more CPU usage.
