The Akka Streams API offers a robust, reliable, and expressive means for executing streaming workloads. For applications that demand high throughput, low latency, or increasing scalability, it is critical to understand how to maximize the throughput for Akka Streams. I will examine the structure of Akka Streams and explore techniques for maximizing the throughput of individual streams. I will describe how Akka Streams can be partitioned in order to provide scalability, as well as high-availability. Finally, I will review techniques for profiling and instrumenting Akka Streams to find the bottlenecks. Using the practical techniques from this talk, you will be able to improve the throughput, reliability, and scalability of your streaming applications.
