Apache Kafka

From ArchWiki

Apache Kafka is a distributed streaming platform that:

  1. Lets you publish and subscribe to streams of records. In this respect it is similar to a message queue or enterprise messaging system.
  2. Lets you store streams of records in a fault-tolerant way.
  3. Lets you process streams of records as they occur.


Install the kafkaAUR package.

Start kafka.service, which should also automatically start/enable zookeeper@kafka.service as well.


For usage see official documentation
