Notes on running Redis with HPC techniques

High Performance Redis

In response to this brief blog entry, @antirez tweeted for some documentation on high-performance techniques for Redis. What I present here are general high-performance computing (HPC) techniques. The examples are oriented to Redis. but they work well for any program designed to be single- or worker-threaded and asynchronous (e.g. uses epoll).

The motivation for using these techniques is to maximize performance of our system and services. By isolating work, controlling memory, and other tuning, you can achieve significant reduction in latency and increase in throughput.

My perspective comes from the microcosm of my own bare-metal (vs VM), on-premises deployment. It might not be suitable for all scenarios, especially cloud deployments, as I have little experience with HPC there. After some discussion, maybe this can be adapted as [ documentation](

Amazon Linux 2 - install docker & docker-compose using 'sudo amazon-linux-extras' command

UPDATE (March 2020, thanks @ic): I don't know the exact AMI version but yum install docker now works on the latest Amazon Linux 2. The instructions below may still be relevant depending on the vintage AMI you are using.

Amazon changed the install in Linux 2. One no-longer using 'yum' See:

Docker CE Install

sudo amazon-linux-extras install docker
sudo service docker start
