Low-Latency Messaging 101


Of the messaging architectures available today, a pure application-to-application design typically results in the lowest- latency messaging solution. However, there are many more issues to be considered to truly optimize end-to-end latency, such as the source of data, the design of the applications, the loss characteristics of the network, and the ability of the system to withstand misbehaving software or hardware without triggering network storms. The best underlying messaging system will take
