Amazon Managed Streaming for Apache Kafka (Amazon MSK) is a fully managed service that enables you to build and run applications that use Apache Kafka to process streaming data.

Amazon MSK provides the control-plane operations, such as those for creating, updating, and deleting clusters.

  • It lets you use Apache Kafka data-plane operations, such as those for producing and consuming data.
  • It runs open-source versions of Apache Kafka.

This means existing applications, tooling, and plugins from partners and the Apache Kafka community are supported without requiring changes to application code.

Use the OpsRamp AWS public cloud integration to discover and collect metrics against the AWS service.

Setup

To set up the OpsRamp AWS integration and discover the AWS service, go to AWS Integration Discovery Profile and select MSK Cluster.
