I don't have any concrete numbers but the REST proxy is quite a bit slower.
That said, it can still be fast and can scale out so it might meet your needs.

Subject: How performant is the confluent REST proxy
We are evaluating using the kafka for integrating into a platform. One option
is to use a rest proxy to simplify interaction with an API backend, as opposed
to directly having a consumer in a backend technology like Node or Laravel.
One concern that cropped up is the performance numbers for REST proxy provided
by Kafka. We couldnt find any numbers around it; have anyone be using this in
production? Would some one like to share experiences in that regards.
Will appreciate the discussion.
