Apache Kafka is one of the distributed messaging systems. Here is the step by step processing to install Apache Kafka in the Linux/Ubuntu operating system.
To install Kafka required Zookeeper and java to run. Mandatory for JDK 1.7 or above version for Kafka installation using below commands:
$ sudo apt update $ sudo apt install default - jdk
Step 1: Download the Kafka binary files from official websites like Download from the apache website.
Step 2: Extract the tarball using the below command:
$ tar -xzvf kafka_2.12.-0.10.1.1tgz
Step 3: After extraction, we see Kafka directory
Step 4: Update the KAFKA_HOME & PATH variable in bashrc file
export KAFKA_HOME = /home/your_path/INSTALL/kafka_2.12-0.10.1.1 export PATH=$PATH:$KAFKA_HOME/bin
Step 5: Ater bashrc changes, open a new terminal and check the bashrc changes using below command:
$ echo $KAFKA_HOME
After installing Apache Kafka on Linux/Ubuntu Start Kafka Server. Before start, the Kafka server, start Zookeeper server on your single node cluster using below commands:
$ cd/usr/local/kafka $ bin/zookeeper-server-start.sh config/zookeeper.properties
After the start, the Zookeeper server then start the Kafka server
$ bin/kafka-server-start.sh config/server.properties
After starting the Kafka server then create topics after that will go with the message passing from producer to consumer. Above steps Kafka installation for single/pseudo cluster setup on top of the Hadoop ecosystem.
Summary: Apache Kafka installation in Linux/Ubuntu operating system it is very simple and uses it. If you need installation in Clouder to need to download separately bundle in Cloudera manager to set up in multi-node cluster setup. Hortonworks needs the installation of Kafka in Ambari.
