Alexandre Alves wrote an interesting article on CEP extensions for Logic Programming (see in which he mentions the use of Rete-based rules engines.   I gave a presentation at a conference last week (October Rules Fest 2009) on the differences and similarities between various event stream processing (ESP) approaches and the Rete algorithm.  I had a slide that is not very different in intent to Alexandre's post.  I also touched on performance issues, which is something he talks about briefly.   I don't know of any solid, well thought out, comparative benchmarking between any of the major ESP and CEP-enabled Rete engines, so I can only hazard informed guesses with regard to likely performance issues.   I thought it would be useful to summarise some of my thinking in this area.
