The user-defined Kafka.properties file contains properties for controlling the Kafka configurations in Panopticon Streams.
Below is a sample properties file:
When Panopticon Streams server is started, it checks the AppData folder for the kafka.properties file and loads the properties in the Kafka Properties box.
However, if the kafka.properties file is not available, the Kafka Properties box will display a blank Kafka Properties box:
If you opt to copy the kafka.properties file to a different location, open the Streams.properties file and set the attribute cep.kafka.properties to the value of the file path along with the Kafka properties file name. For example:
· The values in the Kafka Properties box is not editable on the System tab. Changes can be made in the actual kafka.properties file. To reload the properties on the System tab, click Reload Configuration.
· The kafka.properties file supports any Kafka configurations available on their documentation
· The configurations made in the kafka.properties will supersede any of the Kafka-related properties in the streams.properties file
· Some of the configurations in the kafka.properties file can be overridden by the settings made in Panopticon Streams applications
