Hi Team,

I have one single node Kafka cluster on CentOS VM. But I don't know too much about Kafka broker. Can anyone tell me about Kafka broker?

Hi@akhtar,

Kafka broker receives messages from producers and stores them on disk keyed by unique offset. A Kafka broker allows consumers to fetch messages by a topic, partition, and offset. Kafka brokers can create a Kafka cluster by sharing information with each other directly or indirectly using Zookeeper.
