Disque vs DoctorKafka: What are the differences?
Developers describe Disque as "In-memory, distributed job queue". Disque is an ongoing experiment to build a distributed, in-memory, message broker. Its goal is to capture the essence of the "Redis as a jobs queue" use case, which is usually implemented using blocking list operations, and move it into an ad-hoc, self-contained, scalable, and fault tolerant design, with simple to understand properties and guarantees, but still resembling Redis in terms of simplicity, performance, and implementation as a C non-blocking networked server. On the other hand, DoctorKafka is detailed as "A service for Kafka cluster auto healing and workload balancing". DoctorKafka can automatically detect broker failure and reassign the workload on the failed nodes to other nodes. DoctorKafka can also perform load balancing based on topic partitions's network usage, and makes sure that broker network usage does not exceed the defined settings.
Disque and DoctorKafka can be categorized as "Message Queue" tools.
Disque and DoctorKafka are both open source tools. Disque with 7.37K GitHub stars and 516 forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than DoctorKafka with 488 GitHub stars and 68 GitHub forks.
