What is SpringQL?

SpringQL is an open-source stream processor working with low and hard-limited working memory. It is supposed to run on resource-poor such as IoT devices and in-vehicle computers.

  • SQL support

    Like other stream processors, infinite number of rows flow through SpringQL system. You can register SQL-like (continuous) queries to filter, transform, and analyze rows. SpringQL has the ability to make windows from stream of rows so that you can perform GROUP BY, JOIN, and even more operations targeting on finite number of rows.

  • Small memory footprint

    SpringQL usually works with as low working memory as around 1MB. Even when processing heavy workload (e.g. with large size windows, or with rapid stream inputs), SpringQL tries to recover from high memory pressure by switching the internal task schedulers.

    You can set maximum memory allowed to consumed by SpringQL by configuration.

Why SpringQL?

  • Realtime stream processing completed in edge

    Some computations uses real-time data, such as sensor data, emerged from edge devices themselves. If such computations need to calculate results quickly, you may not have time to send the data to servers and get the result back from them.

    For real-time processing in edge devices, SpringQL provides fundamental tools to time-series calculations including window operations via SQL-like language.

  • Reducing data size before sending to servers

    If you would perform complex stream analysis, such as heavy machine learning, visualization, using data from edge devices, you may perform stream processing mainly on resource-rich servers.

    If you have so many edge devices and need to shrink costs for data transfer, storage, and computation in servers, you may want to shrink data size in edges before sending them to servers.

    SpringQL helps you reduce data size by filtering, aggregation, and projection.
