Digital Ocean with Kafka and Prometheus for Kafka Metrics

Hello, I would like to know if I have Prometheus installed on Digital Ocean, can I use this with the Kafka metrics obtained from my Kafka installation on Digital Ocean? Is there a guide or documentation on setting this up? Thanks, Rob.

Yes, you can use Prometheus to monitor Kafka metrics from your Kafka installation on Digital Ocean. Prometheus is a widely used open-source monitoring and alerting toolkit that is compatible with many systems, including Kafka.

You can also use Grafana and Loki for monitoring and logging in order to keep the setup at it’s finest.
