Redis - Benchmarks


Redis benchmark is the utility to check the performance of Redis by running n commands simultaneously.


Following is the basic syntax of Redis benchmark.

redis-benchmark [option] [option value] 


Following example checks Redis by calling 100000 commands.

redis-benchmark -n 100000  

PING_INLINE: 141043.72 requests per second 
PING_BULK: 142857.14 requests per second 
SET: 141442.72 requests per second 
GET: 145348.83 requests per second 
INCR: 137362.64 requests per second 
LPUSH: 145348.83 requests per second 
LPOP: 146198.83 requests per second 
SADD: 146198.83 requests per second 
SPOP: 149253.73 requests per second 
LPUSH (needed to benchmark LRANGE): 148588.42 requests per second 
LRANGE_100 (first 100 elements): 58411.21 requests per second 
LRANGE_300 (first 300 elements): 21195.42 requests per second 
LRANGE_500 (first 450 elements): 14539.11 requests per second 
LRANGE_600 (first 600 elements): 10504.20 requests per second 
MSET (10 keys): 93283.58 requests per second 

Following is a list of available options in Redis benchmark.

Sr.No Option Description Default Value
1 -h Specifies server host name
2 -p Specifies server port 6379
3 -s Specifies server socket
4 -c Specifies the number of parallel connections 50
5 -n Specifies the total number of requests 10000
6 -d Specifies data size of SET/GET value in bytes 2
7 -k 1=keep alive, 0=reconnect 1
8 -r Use random keys for SET/GET/INCR, random values for SADD
9 -p Pipeline <numreq> requests 1
10 -h Specifies server host name
11 -q Forces Quiet to Redis. Just shows query/sec values
12 --csv Output in CSV format
13 -l Generates loop, Run the tests forever
14 -t Only runs the comma-separated list of tests
15 -I Idle mode. Just opens N idle connections and wait


Following example shows the multiple usage options in Redis benchmark utility.

redis-benchmark -h -p 6379 -t set,lpush -n 100000 -q  

SET: 146198.83 requests per second 
LPUSH: 145560.41 requests per second
