Workers, Executors, and Tasks

Apache Storm processes, called workers, run on predefined ports on the machine that hosts Storm.

  • Each worker process can run one or more executors, or threads, where each executor is a thread spawned by the worker process.

  • Each executor runs one or more tasks from the same component, where a component is a spout or bolt from a topology.
