1. Install DC/OS on your cluster. See the documentation for instructions.

  2. If you are using open source DC/OS, install a Beta Confluent Kafka cluster with the following command from the DC/OS CLI. If you are using Enterprise DC/OS, you may need to follow additional instructions. See the Install and Customize section for more information.

    dcos package install beta-confluent-kafka

    Alternatively, you can install Beta Confluent Kafka from the DC/OS web interface.

    Confluent Kafka will deploy with a default configuration. You can monitor deployment at the Services tab of the DC/OS web interface.

  3. Create a new topic.

     dcos beta-confluent-kafka topic create topic1
  1. Find Zookeeper and broker endpoint information.

     dcos beta-confluent-kafka endpoints zookeeper
     dcos beta-confluent-kafka endpoints broker
       "address": [
       "dns": [
       "vip": "broker.confluent-kafka.l4lb.thisdcos.directory:9092"
  2. Produce and consume data.

     dcos node ssh --master-proxy --leader
     [email protected] ~ docker run -it mesosphere/kafka-client
     [email protected]:/bin# echo "Hello, World." | ./kafka-console-producer.sh --broker-list kafka-0-broker.kafka.autoip.dcos.thisdcos.directory:1000, kafka-1-broker.kafka.autoip.dcos.thisdcos.directory:1000, kafka-2-broker.kafka.autoip.dcos.thisdcos.directory:1000 --topic topic1
     [email protected]:/bin# ./kafka-console-consumer.sh --zookeeper master.mesos:2181/dcos-service-kafka --topic topic1 --from-beginning
