Hi everyone. I’m just getting started with the Confluent platform. I installed it using the on-premise tar method on a small Ubuntu VM.
Now I would like Kafka to store the data within topics on a mounted disk. Therefore, I adjusted the
server.properties and specified the directory (e.g. “/mnt/kafka”) in the
log.dirs parameter according to the docs.
I then start the platform using
confluent local services start and create my connectors to populate the topics. However, my directory on the mounted disk does not seem to be written data to.
It looks like the data remains here: “/tmp/confluent.104865/kafka/data”
Any thoughts on what could be missing?
Thank you for your help!
