Kafka - Cli
The cli is an utility to manage:
from the command line.
Cli is a linux only tool. On Windows platforms use bin\windows\ instead of bin/, and change the script extension to .bat
The equivalent commands to start every service in its own terminal, without using the CLI are:
# Start ZooKeeper. Run this command in its own terminal. $ ./bin/zookeeper-server-start ./etc/kafka/zookeeper.properties # Start Kafka. Run this command in its own terminal. $ ./bin/kafka-server-start ./etc/kafka/server.properties # Start Schema Registry. Run this command in its own terminal. $ ./bin/schema-registry-start ./etc/schema-registry/schema-registry.properties # Start Connect in distributed mode. Run this command in its own terminal. $ ./bin/connect-distributed ./etc/schema-registry/connect-avro-distributed.properties
To completely delete any data produced and start on a clean slate, you may run confluent destroy instead.
