Kafka storage increase cooldown period

Hi friends, when you increase the storage of aws kafka (msk) there is a cooldown period - https://docs.aws.amazon.com/msk/latest/developerguide/msk-update-storage.html

Is there some way to know the msk cluster is still on “cooldown”?


If you query this, I believe the state would be UPDATING while in the cool down period and return to ACTIVE when it is finished. Worth a try via the CLI or SDK.

I also thought about that and it switched to ACTIVE as soon as the storage value updated. But as the documentation suggests it is misleading

When storage is scaled for an MSK cluster, the additional storage is made available right away. However, the cluster requires a cool-down period after every storage scaling event.
