What is Hystrix and what are its top alternatives?

Hystrix is a latency and fault tolerance library designed to isolate points of access to remote systems, services and 3rd party libraries, stop cascading failure and enable resilience in complex distributed systems where failure is inevitable.
Hystrix is a tool in the Fault Tolerance Tools category of a tech stack.
Hystrix is an open source tool with 19.1K GitHub stars and 4K GitHub forks. Here鈥檚 a link to Hystrix's open source repository on GitHub

To solve the problem of scheduling and executing arbitrary tasks in its distributed infrastructure, PagerDuty created an open-source tool called Scheduler. Scheduler is written in Scala and uses Cassandra for task persistence. It also adds Apache Kafka to handle task queuing and partitioning, with Akka to structure the library鈥檚 concurrency.

The service鈥檚 logic schedules a task by passing it to the Scheduler鈥檚 Scala API, which serializes the task metadata and enqueues it into Kafka. Scheduler then consumes the tasks, and posts them to Cassandra to prevent data loss.

I decided to use Akka instead of Kafka streams because I have personal relationships at @Lightbend.

As for the new support of service mesh pattern by Kong, I wonder how does it compare to Istio?
