Incorta uses Zookeeper for the following:
- Cluster Management Console (CMC)
- Coordinate tasks between the Loader and Analytic services
Incorta uses Zookeeper through a framework called Curator which facilitates the communication between Zookeeper and Incorta. Incorta records schema, dashboard, and connector names as clear text. You can secure the data sent between Incorta and Zookeeper using TLS. Incorta does not send authentication codes using Zookeeper.
In the CMC, Incorta uses Zookeeper to sync the Incorta server state (for example, Started, In Progress, and Stopped).
For more information on how to secure Zookeeper using TLS, see the Zookeeper User Guide
