A good free monitor tool would be great for Apache Kafka (from Apache foundation).

Apache MQ is different. It is a message bus (log rotate) than can manage more than 10,000 events/sec.

Initial Setup

The basic configuration is quite good. We have built a Hadoop cluster and the Kafka service was included.

We use a community version.

Other Advice

Kafka processes asynchronous exchanges, so there are no transactional interactions.
