Comparative analysis of transfer protocols asynchronous messages on systems queuing


This article presents an analysis of the performance of two protocols supported by queuing systems, i.e. MQTT and AMQP. This analysis was performed using two message brokers - ActiveMQ and RabbitMQ. The time of sending the message was analyzed, determined on the basis of the time of sending and receiving the message for both protocols in both of the above-mentioned queuing systems. The tests were carried out using proprietary applications written in Java and the Spring application framework.
