Event Stream Processor Matrix

From the post:

We published our first ever UI-focused post on Top JavaScript Dynamic Table Libraries the other day and got some valuable feedback – thanks!

We are back to talking about the backend again. Our Search Analytics and Scalable Performance Monitoring services/products accept, process, and store huge amounts of data. One thing both of these services do is process a stream of events in real-time (and batch, of course). So what solutions are there that help one process data in real-time and perform some operations on a rolling window of data, such as the last 5 or 30 minutes of incoming event stream? We know of several solutions that fit that bill, so we decided to put together a matrix with essential attributes of those tools in order to compare them and make our pick. Below is the matrix we came up with. If you are viewing this on our site, the table is likely going to be too wide, but it should look find in a proper feed reader.

Another great collection of resources from Sematext!

So, must have subjects because something is being recognized in order to have “events.” That implies to me that with subjects being recognized, it is likely enterprises have other information about those subjects that would be useful to have together, “merged” I think is the term I want. 😉

Has anyone seen “events” recognized in one system being populated with information from another system? With different criteria for the same subject?
