How to Run Debezium Server with Kafka as a Sink

Change data capture (CDC) captures changes made to data in a database and streams those changes to external processes, applications or other databases. In other words, the CDC process identifies whenever there are changes in a database or a table and records those changes to be processed by other downstream applications.

Debezium Server provides a ready-to-use application that streams change events from a source database to messaging infrastructure like Amazon Kinesis or Google Cloud.

Log Aggregation in YugabyteDB with Grafana Loki

Log aggregation is an integral part of a distributed system. As the name suggests, a distributed system will have multiple processes across multiple machines, and each process will generate a lot of data. Looking at the data in silos is time-consuming and wouldn’t yield important information as the data sets still need to be correlated. But aggregating the logs is a huge productivity booster that helps to transform the raw log data into insightful information.
