Manage an Apache Kafka® cluster

    1. Go to the console.

    2. Choose Clusters from the list of services on the left.

    3. Select the cluster you want to manage.

    4. Click Edit in the upper-right corner of the page and configure resources:

      1. Under Resources:

        • Select a preset for CPU and RAM.

        • Specify your Storage capacity.

          When you increase your storage capacity, it's available for use immediately after you submit the new configuration. However, the whole process of modifying your storage volume may take from minutes to hours, depending on the volume increase applied. For example, a volume of 1 TB in size typically takes up to six hours to modify.


          After you increase your Storage capacity, please wait at least six hours per 1 TB to modify it again.

        • Select the Number of Zones. The number of zones is multiplied by the number of brokers and determines the number of hosts.

        • Specify the number of Brokers per zone.

    5. Under Basic settings:

      • Enter the cluster Name.

      • Select the version of Apache Kafka® for your cluster from the Version drop-down list. For most clusters, we recommend using the latest version.

    6. Click Submit.
