Lightweight real-time big data streaming engine over Akka


Maven Central GitHub license Build Status codecov.io Join the chat at https://gitter.im/gearpump/gearpump

Gearpump is a lightweight real-time big data streaming engine. It is inspired by recent advances in the Akka framework and a desire to improve on existing streaming frameworks.

The name Gearpump is a reference to the engineering term "gear pump", which is a super simple pump that consists of only two gears, but is very powerful at streaming water.

We model streaming within the Akka actor hierarchy.

Per initial benchmarks we are able to process near 18 million messages/second (100 bytes per message) with a 8ms latency on a 4-node cluster.

For steps to reproduce the performance test, please check Performance benchmark.
