Kafka Manager vs RabbitMQ: What are the differences?

What is Kafka Manager? 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.

What is RabbitMQ? A messaging broker - an intermediary for messaging. RabbitMQ gives your applications a common platform to send and receive messages, and your messages a safe place to live until received.

Kafka Manager and RabbitMQ can be categorized as "Message Queue" tools.

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, RabbitMQ provides the following key features:

  • Robust messaging for applications
  • Easy to use
  • Runs on all major operating systems

Kafka Manager and RabbitMQ are both open source tools. Kafka Manager with 7.55K GitHub stars and 1.84K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than RabbitMQ with 5.94K GitHub stars and 1.78K GitHub forks.

reddit, 9GAG, and Rainist are some of the popular companies that use RabbitMQ, whereas Kafka Manager is used by Yahoo!, IgnitionOne, and Ocado Technology. RabbitMQ has a broader approval, being mentioned in 940 company stacks & 548 developers stacks; compared to Kafka Manager, which is listed in 8 company stacks and 5 developer stacks.

      What are some alternatives to Kafka Manager and RabbitMQ?
      Kafka
      Kafka is a distributed, partitioned, replicated commit log service. It provides the functionality of a messaging system, but with a unique design.
      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.
      ZeroMQ
      The 0MQ lightweight messaging kernel is a library which extends the standard socket interfaces with features traditionally provided by specialised messaging middleware products. 0MQ sockets provide an abstraction of asynchronous message queues, multiple messaging patterns, message filtering (subscriptions), seamless access to multiple transport protocols and more.

      Reviews of Kafka Manager and RabbitMQ
      Review ofRabbitMQRabbitMQ

      I developed one of the largest queue based medical results delivery systems in the world, 18,000+ queues and still growing over a decade later all using MQSeries, later called Websphere MQ. When I left that company I started using RabbitMQ after doing some research on free offerings.. it works brilliantly and is incredibly flexible from small scale single instance use to large scale multi-server - multi-site architectures.

      If you can think in queues then RabbitMQ should be a viable solution for integrating disparate systems.

      The poster child for scalable messaging systems, RabbitMQ has been used in countless large scale systems as the messaging backbone of any large cluster, and has proven itself time and again in many production settings.

      Rabbit acts as our coordinator for all actions that happen during game time. All worker containers connect to rabbit in order to receive game events and emit their own events when applicable.

      Used as central Message Broker; off-loading tasks to be executed asynchronous, used as communication tool between different microservices, used as tool to handle peaks in incoming data, etc.

      RabbitMQ is the enterprise message bus for our platform, providing infrastructure for managing our ETL queues, real-time event notifications for applications, and audit logging.

      RabbitMQ is an all purpose queuing service for our stack. We use it for user facing jobs as well as keeping track of behind the scenes jobs.
