Monitoring Kafka on Docker Cloud By @Sematext | @DevOpsSummit #Cloud #DevOps

Docker Cloud is the best service for Docker container management and deployment

Monitoring Kafka on Docker Cloud
By Stefan Thies

For those of you using Apache Kafka and Docker Cloud or considering it, we’ve got a Sematext user case study for your reading pleasure. In this use case, Ján Antala, a Software Engineer in the DevOps Team at @pygmalios, talks about the business and technical needs that drove their decision to use Docker Cloud, how they are using Docker Cloud, and how their Docker and Kafka monitoring is done.

Pygmalios – Future of data-driven retail.

Pygmalios Logo

Pygmalios helps companies monitor how customers and staff interact in real-time. Our retail analytics platforms tracks sales, display conversions, customers and staff behavior to deliver better service, targeted sales, faster check-outs and the optimal amount of staffing for a given time and location. Among our partners are big names such as dm drogerie or BMW.

I am a software engineer on a DevOps position so I know about all the challenges from both sides – infrastructure as well as software development.

Our infrastructure
In Pygmalios we have decided to use the architecture based on microservices for our analytics platform. We have a complex system of Apache Spark, Apache Kafka, Cassandra and InfluxDB databases, Node.js backend and JavaScript frontend applications where every service has its own single responsibility which makes them easy to scale. We run them mostly in Docker containers apart from Spark and Cassandra which run on the DataStax Enterprise stack.

We have around 50 different Docker services in total. Why Docker? Because it’s easy to deploy, scale and you don’t have to care about where you run your applications. You can even transfer them between node clusters in seconds. We don’t have our own servers but use cloud providers instead, especially AWS. We have been using Tutum to orchestrate our Docker containers for the past year (Tutum was acquired by Docker recently and the service is now called Docker Cloud).

Docker Cloud is the best service for Docker container management and deployment and totally matches our needs. You can create servers on any cloud provider or bring your own, add Docker image and write stack file where you can list rules which specify what and where to deploy. Then you can manage all your services and nodes via a dashboard. We really love the CI & CD features. When we push a new commit to Github the Docker image is built and then automatically deployed to the production.

DevOps Challenges
As we use a microservices architecture we have a lot of applications across multiple servers so we need to orchestrate them. We also have many physical sensors outside in the retail stores which are our data sources. In the end, there are a lot of things we have to think about including correlations between them:

Server monitoring
Basic metrics for the hardware layer such as memory, cpu and network.

Docker monitoring
In the software layer we want to know whether our applications inside Docker containers are running properly.

Kafka, Spark and Cassandra monitoring
Our core services. They are crucial, so monitoring is a must.

Sensors monitoring
Sensors are deployed outside in the retail stores. We have to monitor them as well and use custom metrics.

Notifications
We want alerts whenever anything breaks.

Centralized logging
Store all logs in one place, combine them with hardware usage and then analyze anomalies.

Monitoring & Logging on Docker Cloud
There is already a great post about Docker Cloud Monitoring and Logging so more information go to this blog: Docker Cloud Monitoring and Logging.

Kafka on Docker Cloud
We use a cluster of 3 brokers each running in a Docker container across nodes because Kafka is crucial for us. We are not collecting any data when Kafka is not available so they are lost forever if Kafka is ever down. Sure, we have buffers inside sensors, but we don’t want to rely on them. All topics are also replicated between all brokers so we can handle outage of 2 nodes. Our goal is also to scale it easily.

Kafka and Zookeeper live together so you have to link them using connection parameters. Kafka doesn’t have a master broker but the leader is automatically elected by Zookeeper from available brokers. Zookeeper elects its own leader automatically. To scale Kafka and Zookeeper to more nodes we just have to add them into Docker Cloud cluster as we use every_node deployment strategy and update connection link in the stack file.

We use our own fork of wurstmeister/kafka and signalfx/docker-zookeeper Docker images and I would encourage you to do the same so you can easily tune them to your needs.

To run Kafka + Zookeeper cluster launch the following stack on Docker Cloud.

- '3888:3888'

volumes: - '/var/lib/zookeeper:/var/lib/zookeeper'
- '/var/log/zookeeper:/var/log/zookeeper'

We use private networking and hostname addressing (KAFKA_ADVERTISED_HOST_NAME environment variable) for security reasons in our stack. However, you can use IP addressing directly when you replace hostname by IP address. To connect to Kafka from outside environment you have to add records into /etc/hosts file:

KAFKA_NODE.1.IP.ADDRESS kafka-1
KAFKA_NODE.2.IP.ADDRESS kafka-2
KAFKA_NODE.3.IP.ADDRESS kafka-3
KAFKA_NODE.1.IP.ADDRESS zookeeper-1
KAFKA_NODE.2.IP.ADDRESS zookeeper-2
KAFKA_NODE.3.IP.ADDRESS zookeeper-3

Or on Docker Cloud add extra_hosts into service configuration.

extra_hosts:
- 'kafka-1:KAFKA_NODE.1.IP.ADDRESS'
- 'kafka-2:KAFKA_NODE.2.IP.ADDRESS'
- 'kafka-3:KAFKA_NODE.3.IP.ADDRESS'
- 'zookeeper-1:KAFKA_NODE.1.IP.ADDRESS'
- 'zookeeper-2:KAFKA_NODE.2.IP.ADDRESS'
- 'zookeeper-3:KAFKA_NODE.3.IP.ADDRESS'

Then you can use following Zookeeper connection string to connect Kafka:

zookeeper-1:2181,zookeeper-2:2181,zookeeper-3:2181

And Kafka broker list:

kafka-1:9092,kafka-2:9092,kafka-3:9092

Kafka + SPM
To monitor Kafka we use SPM by Sematext which provides Kafka monitoring of all metrics for Brokers, Producers and Consumers available in JMX interface out of the box. They also provide monitoring for other apps we use such as Spark, Cassandra, Docker images and we can also collect logs so we have it all in one place. When we have this information we can find out not only when something happened, but also why.

Our Kafka node cluster with Docker containers is displayed in the following diagram:

SPM Performance Monitoring for Kafka
SPM
collects performance metrics of Kafka. First you have to create an SPM application of type Kafka in the Sematext dashboard and connect SPM client Docker container from sematext/spm-client image. We use SPM client in-process mode as a Java agent so it is easy to set up. Just add SPM_CONFIG environment variable to SPM client Docker container, where you specify monitor configuration of Kafka Brokers, Consumers and Producers. Note, that you have to use your own SPM token, instead of YOUR_SPM_TOKEN.

create new SPM app

sematext-agent-kafka:
image: 'sematext/spm-client:latest'
deployment_strategy: every_node
environment:
- 'SPM_CONFIG=YOUR_SPM_TOKEN kafka javaagent kafka-broker;YOUR_SPM_TOKEN kafka javaagent kafka-producer;YOUR_SPM_TOKEN kafka javaagent kafka-consumer'
restart: always
tags:
- kafka

Kafka
You have to also connect Kafka and SPM monitor together. This can be done by mounting volume from the SPM monitor service into Kafka container using volumes_from option. To enable the SPM monitor just add KAFKA_JMX_OPTS environment variable into Kafka container by adding the following arguments to your JVM startup script for Kafka Broker, Producer & Consumer.

KAFKA_JMX_OPTS=-Dcom.sun.management.jmxremote -javaagent:/opt/spm/spm-monitor/lib/spm-monitor-kafka.jar=YOUR_SPM_TOKEN:kafka-broker:default -Dcom.sun.management.jmxremote
-javaagent:/opt/spm/spm-monitor/lib/spm-monitor-kafka.jar=YOUR_SPM_TOKEN:kafka-producer:default -Dcom.sun.management.jmxremote -javaagent:/opt/spm/spm-monitor/lib/spm-monitor-kafka.jar=YOUR_SPM_TOKEN:kafka-consumer:default
-Dcom.sun.management.jmxremote.authenticate=false -Dcom.sun.management.jmxremote.ssl=false

Done! Your Kafka cluster monitoring is set up. Now you can monitor requests, topics and other JMX metrics out of the box or you can create custom dashboards by connecting other apps.

The goal of Continuous Testing is to shift testing left to find defects earlier and release software faster. This can be achieved by integrating a set of open source functional and performance testing tools in the early stages of your software delivery lifecycle. There is one process that binds all application delivery stages together into one well-orchestrated machine: Continuous Testing. Continuous Testing is the conveyor belt between the Software Factory and production stages. Artifacts are moved from one stage to the next only after they have been tested and approved to continue. New code submitted to the repository is tested upon commit. When tests fail, the code is rejected. Subsystems are approved as part of periodic builds on their way to the delivery stage, where the system is being tested as production ready. The release process stops when tests fail. The key is to shift test ...

Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no idea how to get a proper answer.
