Conduktor shows the most useful informations you need to work with ksqlDB:
Streams: real-time streaming!
Tables: when you GROUP BY a stream, it gives you a TABLE for instance (aggregation by key for instance)
Queries: the running queries on your cluster.
Services: you can connect to multiple ksqlDB clusters in Conduktor, each has its own configurations, custom types etc. ksqlDB distinguishes its clusters by the "Service" name.
Types: you can create type alias instead of always relying on the raw types (such as
address<string, string>, you can now use the
address type in your streams and tables)
Conduktor also alerts you in case of problems on your streams, also visible in the details.
The details of the Stream or Table shows many things:
The format of the key / value (only Value before 0.14.x)
The topic from which the data are read
The queries reading from or writing into this stream
The fields of the stream / table, to understand the data
Also, Conduktor will be redish in case of record errors:
You can connect to multiple ksqlDB clusters in Conduktor, each has its own configurations, custom types etc. ksqlDB distinguishes its clusters by the "Service" name.
The default service name is generally "default_"
You can see all the configuration of your service, if the properties have their default value or not
Each service has its own custom types and functions
New ksqlDB functions can be added to your clusters by deploying a package (.jar)
