Karafka Web UI contains several features allowing you to understand your system's karafka consumption process.

Below you can find a comprehensive description of the most important features you can use.

Note: Karafka Pro offers enhanced Web UI with many additional metrics and functionalities.


Note: More metrics and detailed consumers inspection are available only in our Pro offering.

The consumers status view allows users to view and monitor the performance of Kafka-running consumers. The page displays real-time data and aggregated metrics about the status of the consumers, such as their current offset, lag, the current state of consumers, and others.

The following metrics are available for each consumer:

  • Started - The moment when the given consumer process was started.
  • Memory - RSS (Resident Set Size) measures memory usage in an operating system. It represents the portion of a process's memory held in RAM and is "resident" in the system.
  • Utilization - Displays the number of threads in a given process against a number of threads actively processing data in a given moment.
  • Total lag - Sumed lag from all the partitions actively consumed by a given process.


Note: More metrics are available in our Pro offering.

This page provides a real-time view of the jobs that are currently being processed, including information such as:

  • Process - Process name where the job is running.
  • Topic - Topic and partition which the job is processing.
  • Consumer - Class of the consumer that is running.
  • Type - Type of work: #consume, #revoke or #shutdown
  • Started at - Since when the job is running.

The Karafka Web UI status page allows you to check and troubleshoot the state of your Karafka Web UI integration with your application.

It can help you identify and mitigate problems that would cause the Web UI to malfunction or misbehave. If you see the 404 page or have issues with Karafka Web UI, this page is worth visiting.

It is accessible regardless of connection permissions to Kafka and can be found under the /status path of your Karafka Web installation.
