Subject Re: Zookeeper on same server as Kafka
Date Fri, 02 Jun 2017 20:47:48 GMT
Usually, the overhead comes when you have kafka and zookeeper doing the
housekeeping (i.e. Disk IO) on the same server. ZK even suggests that you
should keep their logs on totally different physical machine for better
performance. Furthermore, if a mechanical failure occurs, you might not
want both zookeeper and broker going down together.

Can anyone else chime in for some better points?

What are the pros and cons of setting up Zookeeper on the same server as
the Kafka broker ? Earlier offsets were being written to zookeeper which
was a major overhead but with offsets being written to Kafka now, what
other requirements should be taken into consideration for setting up
Zookeeper on the same server as Kafka vs having a separate zookeeper
cluster ?
