Caching Solutions: Redis with Bogdan Hadadea

1. General Description: Redis • • • • NoSQL key-value date store Like MongoDB, but better Built-in persistence More data types o o o o String Hash Set List • Built-in pub/sub feature • Highly scalable

1. General Description: Redis • • • • • • • Creator: Salvatore Sanfilippo Released: 2009 Written in ANSI C Single threaded Open Source Backed by VMWare Early adopted by GitHub

2. Usage: Redis – Who? • StackOverflow – 3 layers of caching o Local cache o Site cache o Global cache • Blizzard – 8 node Redis install o 16GB/instance o For storing auction house and serving avatars • Amazon ElastiCache, Redis-to-go o Cache in the cloud o Cache hosting

2. Usage: Redis – What for? • Redis for cache o Good to place sessions – hashes o A fine place for high score tracking – sorted sets • Redis as database o Persistence to disk o High performance • Redis as message bus o Based on Pub/Sub functionality o Queues with list structures o Resque – Ruby library for creating background jobs

3. Architecture: Redis – Overview

3. Architecture: Redis • Request/Response Protocols: o Redis is a TCP server using the client-server model Request/Response protocol • Pipelining: o Process multiple requests even if response not read yet o Not paying the RTT (Round Trip Time) for every command • Limitations: o Responses stored in a queue o Recommended max: 10k commands • Benchmark: ‘Ping’ – 10k times

3. Architecture: Redis • Scripting o o o o Lua interpreter built in ver. > 2.6 Using EVAL and EVALSHA Conversion between Lua and Redis data types & redis.pcall() o Atomicity of scripts o Emitting Redis logs from scripts o EVALSHA in the context of pipelining

3. Architecture: Redis • Replication: o o o o o o o o o o o o o Master-slave: exact copies Asynchronous replication Master – multiple slaves Non-blocking replication – master side Non-blocking replication – slave side – old dataset Slaves accept connections from other slaves Replication for scalability Replication for cost saving Full/Partial synchronization Configure: slaveof 6379 Read-only slaves Slave authentication to master Write only when N replicas

3. Architecture: Redis • Redis Transactions: o No rollback o Optimistic locking

3. Architecture: Redis • Publisher/Subscriber messaging paradigm o Decoupling pub-sub o Pattern matching subscriptions • Redis clustering o Not production ready • Memory optimization o Encoding of small data – up to 5x less space o Using 32bit instances • Using hashes to abstract a key-value on top of Redis

4. Comparison: Memcached

4. Comparison: Memcached

5. Conclusion • • • • Focused on speed Reliable as database Steeper learning curve than other solutions Still improving
