Apache Kafka

Possibly the most versatile output supported by dnsmonster. Kafka output allows you to connect to endless list of supported sinks. It is the recommended output module for enterprise designs since it offers fault tolerance and it can sustain outages to the sink. dnsmonster’s Kafka output supports compression, TLS, and multiple brokers. In order to provide multiple brokers, you need to specify it multiple times.
