Message Bus - Kafka

Kafka is a stream processing platform which groups like-messages together, such that the number of sequential writes to disk can be increased, thus effectively increasing database speeds.


The message-bus-kafka package consists of a few components, those being Kafka, Kafdrop, and Kminion.

The services consuming from and producing to kafka might crash if Kafka is unreachable, so this is something to bear in mind when making changes to or restarting the kafka service.
