Subject RE: PID files for monitoring two different instances of Kafka on same machine
Date Fri, 05 Jul 2013 13:50:14 GMT
On linux,  "echo $!  > pid.txt" will save the PID of the previous background job to a file.
If you run java to launch kafka directly rather than using the provided scripts, it 
can save process pid into the file. 

Regards,

Libo

We don't have PID files now. You can figure out the instance from the config dir in the command
line.

Thanks,
