Cerner is the world’s largest publicly traded health information technology company, with solutions deployed at over 25,000 facilities worldwide. Using Streams and Apache Kafka for real time performance monitoring, Cerner is able to quickly and accurately identify performance issues.
If you are developing a Streams application that uses the Geospatial toolkit to monitor moving objects, you may have come across sample data in GPX (GPS Exchange) format and want to use it to test your application. This article will show you how to do so.
IBM Streams 4.2 introduces two new features designed to make it easier to attain high performance: automatic submission time fusion and the automatic threading model. Automatic submission time fusion means that you can achieve a reasonable number of PEs for your system without having to manually fuse operators, and the automatic threading model means that you can take advantage of multiple cores per host, without having to manually place threaded ports in your application.
