Running Confluent Platform and server saturation

Hi guys,

I have installed Confluent Platform on a Ubuntu Server with 2vCPU and 16Gb RAM.
Server administrator notified me the server saturation: CPU was 100% used from Kafka…to solve the situation it needs to restart the server and restart Confluent services…How can I solve this problem?
Now Confluent Platform/Kafka is receiving data on one topic from some meteo stations and data are send to Kafka every 15 minutes.
Any suggestion is welcome.

Hi @GiuseppeR

if a ssh login is still possible I would recommend to login
to the server and check what exactly is causing the high cpu.
also collect some logs if possible.

then stop the respective services, this depends a little on your installation.
how did you install confluent platform? package based or zip/tar based?
