Sentry 10 Kafka/Zookeeper and Snuba


I’m migrating from Sentry 8 to Sentry 10 (fresh install). I would like to know if Kafka/Zookeeper and Snuba are mandatory? It’s not clear in the documentation if we can enable/disable them.
If yes, do I need in-depth knowledge of these technologies?

Thanks in advance.

Yes they are both required to be able to run Sentry properly and no, you don’t need to know much about them if you don’t intend to scale beyond a single host. You may read more at our announcement post:


Thanks for your answer!
