Kpow v89.1 is a major feature release that includes up to 20x improvement in Data Inspect speed, support for Confluent Managed Connect, support for MSK Managed Connect, and support for MSK Serverless. This release also includes several minor UI/UX bug fixes and optional basic authentication for Prometheus egress.
Data Inspect Performance
Improving the speed of Kpow's Data Inspection function was a priority for our team through this release. We incorporated feedback from customers and built a test corpus spanning multiple message types, sizes, and compression formats. We will provide a deep dive blog post on these improvements, but the long and short of it is that you can expect a search speed-up of between 3x to 20x depending on those topic factors.
Kpow's Kafka Connect functionality is extended to support both Confluent Managed Connect, and MSK Managed Connect.
Kpow supports integration with MSK Serverless, see our documentation for configuration and limitations.
Prometheus Basic Authentication
Kpow provides optional Basic Authentication for Prometheus endpoints, see our documentation for configuration.
