I have just installed PEGA 8.3 Personal Edition in my Windows laptop. From the start, some of the resource-heavy operations, like logging into the Environment, or a new Application creation wizard are encountering slowness.
I checked the logs, and found that some errors are happening everytime these processes run:
(1)Caused by: com.pega.pegarules.pub.PRRuntimeException: Unable to create topic configuration
at com.pega.dsm.kafka.impl.KafkaSchema.createTopic(KafkaSchema.java:111) ~[d-node.jar:?]

at com.pega.dsm.kafka.impl.KafkaSchema$1.execute(KafkaSchema.java:55) ~[d-node.jar:?]
(2) aused by: org.apache.kafka.common.errors.TimeoutException: Timed out waiting for a node assignment.
2020-04-14 10:37:51,810 [Flow.Default-Pulse:5] [ STANDARD] [ ] [ ] (ce.HandleFailedManagedRunsTask) ERROR - Failed to continue failed managed run pySendEmail
com.pega.dsm.dnode.api.dataflow.service.DataFlowActivationException: FAILED to activate run, marking run as failed
Can anyone help me in debugging it, and identifying it the root cause here ? From the logs , it looks like PEGA is trying to create a Kafka topic and failing from the OOTB code.
I have attached entire log for reference in this question.
Indeed, you system is not performing at all. All of those exceptions are signs of that. Normally just a few setting changes would suffice. First of all, try to add prconfig setting agent/threadpoolsize with a value of 50 or 100 and restart/monitor startup log. Secondly, check your JVM arguments in terms of heap sizes etc. I know this is the personal edition (which I do not have locally to verify) but ideas remain the same. Lastly your own local machine, what is the spec (RAM/CPU etc)?
