What are Azure Event Hubs?
Azure Event Hubs is a popular Microsoft Azure offering for Big Data streaming and event ingestion. Event Hubs allow you to receive and process millions of events every second. You can also store and transform the data sent to the event hub by using popular real time analytics services or implement efficient batching. Azure Event Hubs finds practical implementations in a variety of scenarios and use-cases such as anomaly or fraud detection, app logging, building analytics pipelines such as clickstream data, live dashboarding and archiving of data, user and device telemetry, and more. Azure Event Hubs is a fully-managed PaaS, which means you do not have waste any time on its configuration or administration. Event Hubs can also integrate seamlessly with your Kafka apps, so you get the complete Kafka benefits without having to manage or configure your Kafka clusters.
How do I use Azure Event Hubs?
To use Azure Event Hubs, you can create a new Event Hubs workspace containing one or more event hubs. This can be done via the Azure Portal or the Azure CLI. You also have the option to make the event hubs compatible with the Apache Kafka protocol. Choose a resource group for the namespace, along with the region and the required throughput units. You can then proceed to create a new event hub within that namespace. After setting the partition count for better horizontal scaling as well as the message retention time, you can start using that Event Hub.
What kind of events can the Azure Event Hubs protocol handle?
You can collect Azure Activity logs, diagnostic logs, as well as system log events from the Event Hubs cloud storage.
