Kpow v92.1 is the 112th release of Kpow and is the first of the v92 major version.
This release closes a large number of support tickets, introduces new features, and changes the default observation behaviour of Kafka Connect and Schema Registry to be more efficient. Consider this release a spring-clean that lays the groundwork for some exciting product news, more to follow shortly.
Default Observation Change
In Kpow v91.1 we introduced a new obervation method for Schema Registry, similarly in Kpow v91.4 we introduced a new obervation method for Kafka Connect.
These new observation methods reduce the number of network calls that Kpow makes to snapshot Schema and Connect resources. In this release we make the new observation methods the default behaviour of Kpow. If required you can revert to the previous behaviour, check the Schema and Connect docs for details.
Time Since URP
Kpow already shows you the details of any Under Replicated Partitions (URP), in this release we add new information to the table of URP data - the time elapsed since the URP was first detected. This elapsed time is useful context when determining the cause and criticality of Under Replciated Partitions.
Multi Topic Create
Kpow v92.1 introduces new UX that allows for the creation of multiple topics at the same time, directly from the Create Topic UI.
