Project description

codecov Actions Actions


Redis benchmark run helper can help you with the following tasks:

  • Setup abd teardown of benchmarking infrastructure specified on redis-performance/testing-infrastructure
  • Setup and teardown of an Redis and Redis Modules DBs for benchmarking
  • Management of benchmark data and specifications across different setups
  • Running benchmarks and recording results
  • Exporting performance results in several formats (CSV, RedisTimeSeries, JSON)
  • Finding on-cpu, off-cpu, io, and threading performance problems by attaching profiling tools/probers ( perf (a.k.a. perf_events), bpf tooling, vtune )
  • [SOON] Finding performance problems by attaching telemetry probes

Current supported benchmark tools:


Installation is done using pip, the package installer for Python, in the following manner:

python3 -m pip install redisbench-admin

Profiler daemon

You can use the profiler daemon by itself in the following manner. On the target machine do as follow:

pip3 install --upgrade pip
pip3 install redisbench-admin --ignore-installed PyYAML

# install perf
apt install linux-tools-common linux-tools-generic linux-tools-`uname -r` -y

# ensure perf is working
perf --version

# install awscli
snap install aws-cli --classic

# configure aws
aws configure

# start the perf-daemon
perf-daemon start
