Apache Kafka on DietPi

Post by JimTal »

My application requires Apache Kafka (with zookeeper) and being new to DietPi, I am wanting to know if anyone has installed and run Apache Kafka on DietPi ? My hardware is RPi 4 with 4 GB Ram. Thanks.

many thanks for your request. Theoretically it should be possible. The only thing needed is OpenJDK11 (available vie dietpi-software) and the Apache Kafka software. You could try following this guide. It's basically straight forward.


Latest version is 2.6.0 https://kafka.apache.org/downloads

The only thing to decide, which user should execute your Apache Kafka installation. Just following the guide, will run the service a root. ;)
Pls let us know if a solution is working. This could help others if they hit by similar situation. Your DietPi Team
