Streaming Spotlight

Near real-time Kafka performance monitoring and metrics for clusters.

New Kafka Monitoring Capabilities for
Mission-Critical Streaming

Pepperdata Streaming Spotlight enables IT operations teams to get detailed, near real-time visibility into Kafka cluster metrics, broker health, topics, and partitions in a single dashboard.

Customize your Kafka performance monitoring initiatives to create actionable alerts on critical Kafka performance metrics to detect and report atypical behavior in your IT infrastructure.

End-to-End Visibility

The telemetry data provided by Kafka is massive and not easily accessible, especially in large production clusters. Most Kafka performance monitoring solutions fall short of providing the needed metrics, visibility, and insight to run streaming applications efficiently.

Streaming Spotlight’s powerful Kafka performance monitoring delivers in-depth metrics, providing deep visibility between brokers, topics, and their throughputs.
