Should I use MessagePack?
In short, MessagePack seems to offer the best tradeoffs. It has an incredibly good performance, versatility and, in contrast with Protobuff, it is super simple to set up and start working with, independently of the code base. And Redis added support for MessagePack within its server-side Lua scripting.
What are Protobufs used for?
Protocol Buffers (Protobuf) is a free and open-source cross-platform data format used to serialize structured data. It is useful in developing programs to communicate with each other over a network or for storing data.
Why Protobuf is faster than JSON?
JSON is usually easier to debug (the serialized format is human-readable), and easier to work with (no need to define message types, compile them, install additional libraries etc). Protobuf on the other hand usually compresses data better and has built-in protocol documentation via the schema.
Is Msgpack faster than JSON?
Decoding operations usually are slower for both formats, but MessagePack wins here again. When performing a single decode operation, MessagePack is faster by 1 ms. While 100 decode operations execute 62 ms faster with MessagePack instead of json.
What is msgpack format?
MessagePack is an efficient binary serialization format. It lets you exchange data among multiple languages like JSON. But it’s faster and smaller. Small integers are encoded into a single byte, and typical short strings require only one extra byte in addition to the strings themselves.
Is msgpack human readable?
The human readability argument is poor: the JSON that is sent over a network is not usually human readable, so you would use a prettyfier to read it anyway. Moreover a MessagePack message is standalone / self-describing, ie. you don’t need an IDL description to read it.
Should I use protocol buffers?
We recommend you use Protobuf when: You need fast serialisation/deserialisation. Type safety is important. Schema adherence is required.
What is protocol buffer in TensorFlow?
TensorFlow protocol buffer. Since protocol buffers use a structured format when storing data, they can be represented with Python classes. In TensorFlow, the tf. train. Example class represents the protocol buffer used to store data for the input pipeline.
Is Avro better than JSON?
We think Avro is the best choice for a number of reasons: It has a direct mapping to and from JSON. It has a very compact format. The bulk of JSON, repeating every field name with every single record, is what makes JSON inefficient for high-volume usage.
Is msgpack human-readable?
What is BSON vs JSON?
BSON is a serialization format encoding format for JSON mainly used for storing and accessing the documents, whereas JSON is a human-readable standard file format mainly used for transmission of data in the form of key-value attribute pairs. BSON, in fact, in some cases, uses more space than JSON.
What is the best protocol to send a simple message?
UDP is so misunderstood. In situations where you really want to get a simple answer to another server quickly, UDP works best. In general, you want the answer to be in one response packet, and you are prepared to implement your own protocol for reliability or to resend.
What are the best ways to send notifications using UDP packets?
Any other kind of one-way “significant event” or “logging” activity can be handled nicely with UDP packets. You want to send notification without constructing an entire socket. You don’t expect any response from the various listeners. System “heartbeat” or “I’m alive” messages are a good choice, also.
What are some examples of dropped packets?
Examples include video streaming and especially VoIP (e.g. Skype ). In those instances, however, a dropped packet is not such a big deal: our senses aren’t perfect, so we may not even notice. That is why these types of applications use UDP instead of TCP.
What is the best way to send notifications to TIBCO?
IIRC, TIBCO makes heavy use of UDP for notification of state change. Any other kind of one-way “significant event” or “logging” activity can be handled nicely with UDP packets. You want to send notification without constructing an entire socket.
