What is ZeroMQ socket?

ZeroMQ (also known as ØMQ, 0MQ, or zmq) looks like an embeddable networking library but acts like a concurrency framework. It gives you sockets that carry atomic messages across various transports like in-process, inter-process, TCP, and multicast.

Is ZeroMQ TCP or UDP?

ZeroMQ sockets provide a layer of abstraction on top of the traditional socket API, which allows it to hide much of the everyday boilerplate complexity we are forced to repeat in our applications. To begin, instead of being stream (TCP), or datagram (UDP) oriented, ZeroMQ communication is message-oriented.

What is socket in networking?

Definition: A socket is one endpoint of a two-way communication link between two programs running on the network. A socket is bound to a port number so that the TCP layer can identify the application that data is destined to be sent to. An endpoint is a combination of an IP address and a port number.

What is PyZMQ used for?

PyZMQ is the Python bindings for ØMQ. This documentation currently contains notes on some important aspects of developing PyZMQ and an overview of what the ØMQ API looks like in Python. For information on how to use ØMQ in general, see the many examples in the excellent ØMQ Guide, all of which have a version in Python.
