Subject Re: Kafka Important Metrics
Date Mon, 01 Jul 2013 20:26:15 GMT
CSVreporter is probably not an ideal fit for production monitoring -
we use it for getting stats out of period system test runs.

For production monitoring you are probably better off reading off JMX
and feeding your monitoring system of choice. You can also write a
custom metrics reporter and additionally implement
KafkaMetricsReporter (see KafkaCSVMetricsReporter.scala for an
example) and plug it in the KafkaConfig. Your custom metrics reporter
can directly feed into your monitoring system. E.g., if you use
graphite, you can write a KafkaGraphiteReporter that wraps the
GraphiteReporter that coda hale metrics provides.
