Monitoring Kafka without instrumentation with eBPF

Imagine a world where you can access metrics, events, traces and logs in seconds without changing code. Even more, a world where you can run scripts to debug metrics as code. In this session, you will learn about eBPF, a powerful technology with origins in the Linux kernel that holds the potential to fundamentally change how Networking, Observability and Security are delivered.

In this session, we’ll see eBPF monitoring in action applied to the Kafka world as example of a complex Java application: identify Kafka consumers, producers and brokers, see how they interact with each other and how many resources they consume. We'll even show how to measure consumer lag without external components. If you want to know what’s next in Java and Kafka observability in Kubernetes, this session is for you.

Session chairs: Zdenek Dohnal and Lubomir Terifaj
