Cluster Linking using Confluent for Kubernetes
allows you to directly connect Kafka clusters together and mirror topics from one
cluster to another, making it much easier to build multi-datacenter,
multi-cluster, and hybrid cloud deployments.
Enable Cluster Linking with Confluent for Kubernetes
Cluster Linking is not available as a dynamic configuration. You must either
enable it before starting the brokers, or to enable it on a running cluster,
configure it on the brokers and restart them to perform a rolling update.
To enable Cluster Linking:
configOverrides in the Kafka custom resource. See
Configuration overrides for more information about using
- confluent.cluster.link.enable=true # Enable Cluster Linking
Restart the broker clusters as described in Restart Confluent Platform Cluster.
For a complete list of available settings you can use to control
Cluster Linking, see Configuration Option for Cluster Linking.
