2 Ways to start Kafka Services

How to start/stop Kafka service

Here are exclusive ways. With these, you can start or stop Kafka services.  

1. Systemd service

The concept of unit files people who worked on Linux servers have familiarity with it. Also, they know creating the unit file to use by systemd.

To summarize, it initializes and maintains components throughout the system. This means that you can define ZooKeeper and Kafka as unit files, which then will be used by systems.


The first command starts the service, and the second command stops the service.

... [Service] ...

ExecStop= /opt/kafkainaction/bin/zookeeper-server-stop.sh

2. Systemctl by Sudo (root) user

The root user can start or stop the Kafka services. This is more like front-end processing. This way of executing is called systemctl.


The first command starts the Zookeeper and the second one starts Kafka.

$sudo systemctl start zookeeper
$sudo systemctl start kafka
