DistributedLog vs RSMQ: What are the differences?

Developers describe DistributedLog as "High-performance replicated log service, by Twitter". DistributedLog (DL) is a high-performance, replicated log service, offering durability, replication and strong consistency as essentials for building reliable distributed systems. On the other hand, RSMQ is detailed as "A lightweight message queue for Node.js that requires no dedicated queue server. Just a Redis server". tl;dr: If you run a Redis server and currently use Amazon SQS or a similar message queue you might as well use this fast little replacement. Using a shared Redis server multiple Node.js processes can send / receive messages.

DistributedLog and RSMQ can be primarily classified as "Message Queue" tools.

Some of the features offered by DistributedLog are:

  • High Performance
  • Durable and Consistent
  • Efficient Fan-in and Fan-out

On the other hand, RSMQ provides the following key features:

  • Lightweight: Just Redis and ~500 lines of javascript.
  • Guaranteed delivery of a message to exactly one recipient within a messages visibility timeout.
  • Received messages that are not deleted will reappear after the visibility timeout.

DistributedLog and RSMQ are both open source tools. It seems that DistributedLog with 2.25K GitHub stars and 283 forks on GitHub has more adoption than RSMQ with 1.07K GitHub stars and 78 GitHub forks.

      What are some alternatives to DistributedLog and RSMQ?
      Kafka
      Kafka is a distributed, partitioned, replicated commit log service. It provides the functionality of a messaging system, but with a unique design.
      RabbitMQ
      RabbitMQ gives your applications a common platform to send and receive messages, and your messages a safe place to live until received.
      Amazon SQS
      Transmit any volume of data, at any level of throughput, without losing messages or requiring other services to be always available. With SQS, you can offload the administrative burden of operating and scaling a highly available messaging cluster, while paying a low price for only what you use.
      Celery
      Celery is an asynchronous task queue/job queue based on distributed message passing. It is focused on real-time operation, but supports scheduling as well.
      ActiveMQ
      Apache ActiveMQ is fast, supports many Cross Language Clients and Protocols, comes with easy to use Enterprise Integration Patterns and many advanced features while fully supporting JMS 1.1 and J2EE 1.4. Apache ActiveMQ is released under the Apache 2.0 License.
