Alter EXTRA_ARGS for the Kafka service variable to disable GC Logging.

$ cat /etc/systemd/system/kafka.service 
[Unit]
Description=Kafka Service
After=network-online.target 
Requires=network-online.target

[Service]
Environment="EXTRA_ARGS=-name zookeeper"
Type=simple
User=kafka
Group=kafka
WorkingDirectory=/opt/kafka
Restart=on-failure

ExecStart=/opt/kafka/kafka-2.8.1/bin/kafka-server-start.sh /opt/kafka/kafka-2.8.1/config/server.properties
ExecStop=/opt/kafka/kafka-2.8.1/bin/kafka-server-stop.sh /opt/kafka/kafka-2.8.1/config/server.properties

[Install]
WantedBy=multi-user.targe

Alter EXTRA_ARGS for the ZooKeeper service variable to disable GC Logging.

$ cat /etc/systemd/system/zookeeper.service 
[Unit]
Description=ZooKeeper Service
After=network-online.target 
Requires=network-online.target

[Service]
Environment="EXTRA_ARGS=-name kafkaServer"
Type=simple
User=kafka
Group=kafka
WorkingDirectory=/opt/kafka
Restart=on-failure

ExecStart=/opt/kafka/kafka-2.8.1/bin/zookeeper-server-start.sh /opt/kafka/kafka-2.8.1/config/zookeeper.properties
ExecStop=/opt/kafka/kafka-2.8.1/bin/zookeeper-server-stop.sh /opt/kafka/kafka-2.8.1/config/zookeeper.properties

[Install]
WantedBy=multi-user.target

It’s as simple as that.
