What's New in Apache Kafka

Learn about the new features of Kafka in Cloudera Runtime 7.2.6.

Kafka no longer uses non-FIPS compatible algorithms by default

Murmur3 hashing is introduced for the log cleaner when it builds offset maps. In addition, to the introduction of the new hashing algorithm, the default algorithm used is also changed to Murmur3. The previous default was MD5. If required, MD5 can still be used by adding cloudera.log.cleaner.hashing.algorithm=MD5 to the Kafka Broker Advanced Configuration Snippet (Safety Valve) for kafka.properties property in Cloudera Manager.
