The purpose of the study to perform critical analyses on inter process communication (IPC) in the microservice model, than evaluate its impact on basis of various non-business related functionalities, such as; Effectiveness of performance, Accessibility, Adoptability and complexity. There are various techniques for establishing Interprocess communication (IPC) within microservices, each with its own set of benefits and drawbacks. Throughout this research, IPC approaches are divided into two categories: synchronous and asynchronous. The Representational State Transfer Application Programming Interface (REST API) and Google remote procedure call (gRPC) are utilized in the Synchronous kind, whereas Rabbit Message Queue (RabbitMQ) is utilized in the Asynchronous type. A workload test was conducted across each model to get quantitative measurements on the Performance Efficiency and Accessibility of each technique and relatively similar functionality set utilizing to provide qualitative data on the almost every other IPC method adaptability and complexity. Outcome of the research will show, if there is any standardized IPC solution that can be utilized in all scenarios.
