Using an Apache Kafka Producer for Logging and Tracing

Logging and tracing from BVR can be configured to use Apache Kafka topics as described in Trace Configuration Options.

Each option can be set independently to allow data to be sent via a Kafka topic, to the filesystem or both at the same time.

The Apache Kafka topics are shown in the following table:

Table 1. Apache Kafka topics
Description Topic Name
Application logging (high level application events and user generated logging) blueworx.application
Errors, Warnings and emergency Informational messages blueworx.error
Low level tracing blueworx.trace

An Apache Kafka server is needed to host these topics. See here for instructions: Configuring Apache Kafka topics output from BVR
