Kafka management utils

Project description

[![Build Status](](

# Kafka-Utils

A suite of python tools to interact and manage Apache Kafka clusters.
Kafka-Utils runs on python2.7 and python3.

## Configuration

Kafka-Utils reads cluster configuration needed to access Kafka clusters from yaml files. Each cluster is identified by *type* and *name*.
Multiple clusters of the same type should be listed in the same `type.yaml` file.
The yaml files are read from `$KAFKA_DISCOVERY_DIR`, `$HOME/.kafka_discovery` and `/etc/kafka_discovery`, the former overrides the latter.

Sample configuration for `sample_type` cluster at `/etc/kafka_discovery/sample_type.yaml`

- "cluster-elb-1:9092"
zookeeper: ",,"
- "cluster-elb-2:9092"
zookeeper: ",,"
cluster: cluster-1

## Install

$ pip install kafka-utils
