Since my last extended run of blogging, I’ve really gotten into message system infrastructure and streaming data computation architectures. May have to kick the tires on GearPump
GearPump is a lightweight real-time big data streaming engine. It is inspired by recent advances in the Akka framework and a desire to improve on existing streaming frameworks. … Per initial benchmarks we are able to process 11 million messages/second (100 bytes per message) with a 17ms latency on a 4-node cluster.
That seems like a lot of msgs/sec. Gotta see the specs on that cluster.
