Complex business applications that use Kafka to integrate business applications and processes across heterogamous infrastructures often use a mix of legacy, contemporary and leading edge technologies that may include mainframe, cloud and on-premise systems, as well as IOT devices.
These complex environments will use a wide range of pre-defined commercial applications, in-house and partner built applications and third party services, and benefit from Nastel’s® ability to deliver a consistent way of understanding the performance of transactions through the whole application stack.
Nastel® delivers a method of resolving system issues that avoids the often common “days of finger-pointing” and customer satisfaction issues.
Nastel AutoPilot® for Kafka solves the “war room” problem by providing the simplest, yet most complete view of each transaction passing through every point of the application stack, including Kafka, so that the business and each operations, QA and application development team get a consistent understanding of exactly how transactions flow, allowing the entire team to see exactly where slowdowns, errors or outages are taking place.
Looking deeply inside the infrastructure, platform and applications as well as middleware, Nastel AutoPilot® increases your understanding and therefore significantly reduces the time to resolve issues allowing for the best customer experience.

Real-time Kafka Analysis
Undertstand exactly how every transaction (or group transactions) is performing.Monitor using agents or go agent-less Monitor health, performance and policy metrics in real-time. Nastel is the only vendor that provides the choice of monitoring locally (with agents) or remotely (agent-free) to support all types of Kafka implementation.
Benefit from better productivity andvisibility with instant monitoring of Kafka Clusters, Streams / queues, applications and brokers. Auto-discovery of all Kafka objects and their state translates to a visual map of every cluster, broker, producer, consumer, through to the business service, along with all application data formats and dependencies. This saves IT professionals hundreds of hours in initial setup and policy definitions, and eliminates the time consuming work associated with making environment changes, adding new user applications and technologies, etc.
Kafka Transaction Tracking
Gain a deep undertsanding of how eachtransaction performs. Achieve compliance to regulations and corporate governance and be understand the user experience.
Kafka Transaction Visualization
Visibility into applications preventssituations where delayed processing of messages means lost business. See transactions (or groups of transactions) and the details on how they are performing.
Correlate events from other systems
Track a transaction through the wholeapplication stack, hardware, platform,services, applications and middleware. Monitoring Kafka is not enough. To keep your business processes running smoothly Nastel provides visibility into everything that matters, such as events generated by the OS environment, other middleware, and applications.
Early-warning alerts for Kafka performance issues
Advanced warning of performance and availability concerns, maximizing theuser expeience and minimizing the corrective action/preventative action (CAPA) / war-room meetings. In accordance with defined policies, common problems like stream issues or messages in DLQs are immediately visible. AutoPilot for Kafka provides visibility across all Kafka platforms from a single point.
Secure self-service and dashboards
Assignable self-service privileges off-load work from the Kafka team and improve their overall productivity by allowinng app developers and owners to be self-sufficient, while maintaining security and privacy.Customizable dashboards enable every interested party to benefit from access to Kafka visibility. Lower costs, increase productivity and create a shared view of the business.
Configuration management via web browser, easily configure Kafka without concern for the differences between releases, platforms and OS
Increase security and reduce management complexity.User Interface that allows all the parameters associated with Kafka clusters, brokers, streams and messages to be manage centrally.
