Big Data processing in real-time is on the rise at Apache with projects like Apache Spark, Apache Flink or Apache Apex. However at this moment we don’t have a unified framework to evaluate the correctness and the performance of these systems. Apache Beam implements a unified model to write both Batch and Streaming jobs with a single API and execute them independently in any of the supported platforms (runners), this makes Beam an ideal candidate to support an evaluation framework.

In this talk we will present Nexmark, a benchmark framework to evaluate queries over data streams. An implementation of Nexmark was donated by Google as part of the Apache Beam incubation process. Nexmark bridges the gap for evaluating data processing frameworks, but also serves as a rich integration test to evaluate the correct implementation of both the Beam runners and the new features of the Beam SDK.
