MQTTnet

MQTTnet is a high performance .NET library for MQTT based communication. It provides a MQTT client and a MQTT server (broker). The implementation is based on the documentation from http://mqtt.org/.

Features

General

  • Async support
  • TLS 1.2 support for client and server (but not UWP servers)
  • Extensible communication channels (i.e. In-Memory, TCP, TCP+TLS, WS)
  • Lightweight (only the low level implementation of MQTT, no overhead)
  • Performance optimized (processing ~70.000 messages / second)*
  • Interfaces included for mocking and testing
  • Access to internal trace messages
  • Unit tested (~90 tests)

* Tested on local machine (Intel i7 8700K) with MQTTnet client and server running in the same process using the TCP channel. The app for verification is part of this repository and stored in /Tests/MQTTnet.TestApp.NetCore.

Client

  • Communication via TCP (+TLS) or WS (WebSocket) supported
  • Included core MqttClient with low level functionality
  • Also included ManagedMqttClient which maintains the connection and subscriptions automatically. Also application messages are queued and re-scheduled for higher QoS levels automatically.
  • Rx support (via another project)
  • Compatible with Microsoft Azure IoT Hub

Server (broker)

  • List of connected clients available
  • Supports connected clients with different protocol versions at the same time
  • Able to publish its own messages (no loopback client required)
  • Able to receive every message (no loopback client required)
  • Extensible client credential validation
  • Retained messages are supported including persisting via interface methods (own implementation required)
  • WebSockets supported (via ASP.NET Core 2.0, separate nuget)
  • A custom message interceptor can be added which allows transforming or extending every received application message
  • Validate subscriptions and deny subscribing of certain topics depending on requesting clients

Supported frameworks

  • .NET Standard 1.3+
  • .NET Core 1.1+
  • .NET Core App 1.1+
  • .NET Framework 4.5.2+ (x86, x64, AnyCPU)
  • Mono 5.2+
  • Universal Windows Platform (UWP) 10.0.10240+ (x86, x64, ARM, AnyCPU, Windows 10 IoT Core)
  • Xamarin.Android 7.5+
  • Xamarin.iOS 10.14+

Supported MQTT versions

  • 5.0.0 (planned)
  • 3.1.1
  • 3.1.0
