DoctorKafka vs Kafka Manager: What are the differences?
DoctorKafka: A service for Kafka cluster auto healing and workload balancing. DoctorKafka can automatically detect broker failure and reassign the workload on the failed nodes to other nodes. DoctorKafka can also perform load balancing based on topic partitions's network usage, and makes sure that broker network usage does not exceed the defined settings; Kafka Manager: A tool for managing Apache Kafka, developed by Yahoo. This interface makes it easier to identify topics which are unevenly distributed across the cluster or have partition leaders unevenly distributed across the cluster. It supports management of multiple clusters, preferred replica election, replica re-assignment, and topic creation. It is also great for getting a quick bird’s eye view of the cluster.
DoctorKafka and Kafka Manager can be categorized as "Message Queue" tools.
DoctorKafka and Kafka Manager are both open source tools. It seems that Kafka Manager with 7.55K GitHub stars and 1.84K forks on GitHub has more adoption than DoctorKafka with 488 GitHub stars and 68 GitHub forks.
