I’ve installed a vanilla version of the latest Helm chart for Confluent Platform in both Docker for Windows and in AKS. It installs CP 6.0.1 by default. In both cases, the vanilla installation had about 36k/s message traffic before I even added my own producers. Is this normal? What is generating the traffic? Is there a way to tune it?
For kicks, I decided to tweak the Helm Chart to install CP 6.1.1 instead to see if the newer version fixed it, but the traffic actually doubled, almost to the byte. I see that there are now 4 consumers listed in the Consumer manager, all Control Center, two with “6-0-1” in their name and two with “6-1-1” in their name. Did my naïve upgrade via Helm fail to remove part of the 6.0.1 installation?
I’ve tried to google this a little but either there isn’t much out there on the topic or I can’t narrow my search terms sufficiently. Any help is appreciated!
