Open Sourcing Kafka Cruise Control

Anomaly detectorThe anomaly detector identifies two types of anomalies: Broker failures: i.e., a non-empty broker leaves a cluster, which results in under-replicated partitions. Since this can happen during normal cluster bounces as well, the anomaly detector provides a configurable grace period before it triggers the notifier and fixes the cluster. Goal violations: i.e., an optimization goal is violated. If self-healing is enabled, Cruise Control will proactively attempt to address the goal violation by automatically analyzing the workload, and executing optimization…
