Today, companies and organisations with large amounts of data are increasingly faced with the need to produce user-defined data for different types of data stores or to understand how their systems will perform under a heavy data-load. We have created Khermes, an open-source distributed data-generator, to simplify this process. Using Apache Kafka, Khermes can generate large amounts of user-defined data that can be stored anywhere. It can also be used as a “stress tool” to measure the performance of systems in a heavy-load environment: Users can increase the strain on their Apache Kafka clusters and monitor their performance. Through use cases and demos, you will discover Khermes features and how it works.
