Q4: There is no data in Kafka topic after installing log4j Kafka appender
There are a few reasons for this: 1) check if the log4j kafka appender is installed successfully and there is no exceptions when restarting the namenode. 2) check if Apache Kafka is started. 3) If everything is ok, the final choice is to restart the namenode again.
Q5: There is no workers in some topologies.
Apache Storm in sandbox has only two slots (workers) to run topologies by default. If want to run more than two topologies, a user should add extra slots in the configurations and restart Storm.
