Monitoring with external tools

You can use third-party monitoring tools to monitor the deployed Event Streams Kafka cluster by connecting to the JMX port on the Kafka brokers and reading Kafka metrics.

You must configure your installation to set up access for external monitoring tools.

For examples about setting up monitoring with external tools such as Datadog, Prometheus, and Splunk, see the tutorials page.

If you have a tool or service you want to use to monitor your clusters, you can raise a request.
