Mosquitto vs RSMQ: What are the differences?

What is Mosquitto? An open source message broker that implements the MQTT protocol. It is lightweight and is suitable for use on all devices from low power single board computers to full servers.. The MQTT protocol provides a lightweight method of carrying out messaging using a publish/subscribe model. This makes it suitable for Internet of Things messaging such as with low power sensors or mobile devices such as phones, embedded computers or microcontrollers.

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.

Mosquitto and RSMQ can be categorized as "Message Queue" tools.

RSMQ is an open source tool with 1.07K GitHub stars and 78 GitHub forks. Here's a link to RSMQ's open source repository on GitHub.
