Benchmark: ActiveMQ, RabbitMQ, HornetQ, QPID, and Apollo

Free Resource

Discover how developers can easily discover existing APIs and back-end data sources and create new APIs and microservices based on the popular open-source Node.js Express and LoopBack® frameworks.  Brought to you in partnership with IBM.

Adina Mihailescu conducted a recent study that included message queue performance testing using a Rails application that pilots a binary and enqueues/dequeues items taken from a MySQL database.

I decided to bench the following brokers:

The tests were run on a single laptop with this configuration:

  • Model: Dell Studio 1749
  • CPU: Intel Core i3 @ 2.40 GHz
  • RAM: 4 Gb
  • OS: Windows 7 64 bits
  • Ruby 1.9.3p392
  • Java 1.7.0_17-b02
  • Ruby AMQP client gem: amqp 0.9.10
  • Ruby STOMP client gem: stomp 1.2.8
  • Ruby ZeroMQ gem: ffi-rzmq 1.0.0


-- Muriel Salvan 

The benchmarks are pretty interesting and potentially useful for anyone trying to pick a message queue for their next project.  You can see from the results why ZeroMQ is so popular these days.  It doesn't make sense for every scenario, but if you can fit it nicely into your architecture, you should probably do it, since it crushed the competition in almost every test scenario.
