Kafka Exporter


This repository contains the first steps of the Kafka exporter

How to build

To adapt this code to your liking then

DOCKER_REGISTRY=<your.registry/your_organisation> PROJECT_VERSION=1.0.0 make

This will:

  • build and push a docker images as your.registry/your_organisation/kafka-exporter:1.0.0
  • build the Helm charts locally

How to deploy

First you need to enable the push of external events to Nats on the targetted setup.

Activate your voila environment then

# Enable the external events
set_value global.externalEventsEnabled true override
# Apply the configuration

Then push the Helm charts to your Helm repository then:

# add you repository
helm repo add kafka-exporter <your_helm_repository_url>
# deploy
VOILA_HELM_REPO=kafka-exporter deploy i kafka-exporter

To update:

# add you repository
helm repo add kafka-exporter <your_helm_repository_url>
# update
VOILA_HELM_REPO=kafka-exporter deploy u kafka-exporter

To uninstall just type deploy d kafka-exporter

Note: you must deploy the kafka-exporter using the voila environement as explained above because it requires access to some secrets to be able to connect to Nats. If the docker image of the kafka-exporter is not hosted on the same registry where the contron plane docker images are hosted, add an option as below during install or update:

# use another docker registry
VOILA_HELM_REPO=kafka-exporter deploy i kafka-exporter --set global.imageRegistry=<your.registry/your_organisation>
