Kafka Manager vs RSMQ: 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 RSMQ? 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.

Kafka Manager and RSMQ 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, 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.

Kafka Manager and RSMQ are both open source tools. Kafka Manager with 7.55K GitHub stars and 1.84K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than RSMQ with 1.07K GitHub stars and 78 GitHub forks.
