Kafka Manager vs ZeroMQ: What are the differences?
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; ZeroMQ: Fast, lightweight messaging library that allows you to design complex communication system without much effort. 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.
Kafka Manager and ZeroMQ 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, ZeroMQ provides the following key features:
- Connect your code in any language, on any platform.
- Carries messages across inproc, IPC, TCP, TPIC, multicast.
- Smart patterns like pub-sub, push-pull, and router-dealer.
Kafka Manager and ZeroMQ are both open source tools. Kafka Manager with 7.55K GitHub stars and 1.84K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than ZeroMQ with 5.33K GitHub stars and 1.57K GitHub forks.
According to the StackShare community, ZeroMQ has a broader approval, being mentioned in 35 company stacks & 12 developers stacks; compared to Kafka Manager, which is listed in 8 company stacks and 5 developer stacks.
