Karafka Web UI data aggregation is combined out of a few stages:
- Tracking - Refers to collecting per-consumer and other data related to each process's operations.
- Processing - Refers to taking the tracking data and building proper representation models around it for presentation.
- Presenting - Refers to all the work needed to present the data via the Web UI.
This conceptual separation impacts the Web code design. It is divided into three main pieces:
Tracking- All the code related to per-process data tracking and reporting to Kafka
Processing- All code related to processing the tracked data and their aggregation
Web- All code related to the presentation layer
Below you can find the diagram of the whole data flow:
Note: Please note, that this is an abstract flow visualisation. Karafka Web works well even when one
karafka server process running.
