Observability and monitoring are important parts of every platform and any application running on top of it, but it often doesn't get the attention it deserves. Only, when the first problems arise, monitoring gets into focus. Then the first production issues often discover the weaknesses in the monitoring solutions: missing, lost or delayed data, reliability issues, etc. When things go wrong, the monitoring tool chain comes under more pressure and issues become visible. Apache Kafka is often advertised as a streaming platform, but delivering logs and metrics is one of the most common use cases. This talk will explain the main advantages of using Kafka as a data pipeline in monitoring applications such as Fluentd or Jaeger tracing. A demo will show how to use Strimzi CNCF project to set up this stack.
