Hi Adrien,

Without asking the author directly I can't give the exact answer but I 
would interpret that as per broker. Kafka will make use of as much 
hardware as you give it so it's not uncommon to see many CPU cores and 
lots or RAM per broker. That being said it's completely down to your use 
case how much hardware you would require.

Hi all,

on the slide 5 in the following link:


The "Memory" mentions that "24GB+ (for small) and 64GB+ (for large)" Kafka 

but is it 24 or 64 GB spread over all brokers ? Or 24 GB for example for 
each broker ?

Thank you very much,

and best regards,
