Sending Application Logs to Apache Kafka®

For customers who which to perform additional processing, or require more flexible storage of application logs, Instaclustr can ship your application logs to a Instaclustr managed Apache Kafka cluster.

This can be configured for any Instaclustr Managed cluster.

Applications Logs from Instaclustr Managed Clusters can be shipped to a Kafka Log Shipping Cluster which could in turn ship the logs into your own Log Processing and Aggregation system

In order to configure this for your nominated cluster, Instaclustr will require the following information (Note: For Multi Data Centre Clusters we will need the following information per data centre):

  • Source Cluster(s) you would like application logs sent from.
  • The destination Kafka Cluster you would like Instaclustr to write the application logs to
  • Any specific applications you do (or do not) want logged
  • Which Kafka topic(s) you would like to send those applications logs to
    • You can send all logs to the same topic, or a different topic per cluster

You will need to submit a support request with the above information to have this actioned on your cluster. The request will need to come from a user with Cluster Owner or above permissions.
