I have currently setup a cluster. I've used Apache Kafka and zookeeper. But still, I still don't get its usage in the cluster. When are both required and for what requirement?

Apache Kafka is a tool used in Streaming Real-time data.

Kafka consists of:

  • Producer
  • Consumer
  • Broker
  • Zookeeper
Producer generates the topic.
Consumer subscribes to the topic.
The topics published are stored in Kafka Clusters or Brokers.
Zookeeper is the king in Kafka all the memory resource is managed and maintained by Zookeeper.
