Kafka Manager vs NSQ: What are the differences?

Developers describe Kafka Manager as "A tool for managing Apache Kafka, developed by Yahoo". This interface makes it easier to identify topics which are unevenly distributed across the cluster or have partition leaders unevenly distributed across the cluster. It supports management of multiple clusters, preferred replica election, replica re-assignment, and topic creation. It is also great for getting a quick bird’s eye view of the cluster. On the other hand, NSQ is detailed as "A realtime distributed messaging platform". NSQ is a realtime distributed messaging platform designed to operate at scale, handling billions of messages per day. It promotes distributed and decentralized topologies without single points of failure, enabling fault tolerance and high availability coupled with a reliable message delivery guarantee. See features & guarantees.

Kafka Manager and NSQ belong to "Message Queue" category of the tech stack.

Some of the features offered by Kafka Manager are:

  • Manage multiple clusters
  • Easy inspection of cluster state (topics, brokers, replica distribution, partition distribution)
  • Run preferred replica election

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

  • support distributed topologies with no SPOF
  • horizontally scalable (no brokers, seamlessly add more nodes to the cluster)
  • low-latency push based message delivery (performance)

Kafka Manager and NSQ are both open source tools. It seems that NSQ with 15.6K GitHub stars and 2.03K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Kafka Manager with 7.55K GitHub stars and 1.84K GitHub forks.

Stripe, Docker, and Segment are some of the popular companies that use NSQ, whereas Kafka Manager is used by Yahoo!, IgnitionOne, and Ocado Technology. NSQ has a broader approval, being mentioned in 21 company stacks & 8 developers stacks; compared to Kafka Manager, which is listed in 8 company stacks and 5 developer stacks.
