redis-benchmark(1) Benechmark a Redis instance


redis-benchmark [-h <host>] [-p <port>] [-c <clients>] [-n <requests]> [-k <boolean>]


Redis is a key-value database. It is similar to memcached but the dataset is not volatile and other datatypes (such as lists and sets) are natively supported.


-h hostname
Server hostname (default
-p port
Server port (default 6379)
-s socket
Server socket (overrides host and port)
-a password
Password for Redis Auth
-c clients
Number of parallel connections (default 50)
-n requests
Total number of requests (default 10000)
-d size
Data size of SET/GET value in bytes (default 2)
-dbnum db
SELECT the specified db number (default 0)
-k boolean
1=keep alive 0=reconnect (default 1)
-r keyspacelen
Use random keys for SET/GET/INCR, random values for SADD Using this option the benchmark will get/set keys in the form mykey_rand000000012456 instead of constant keys, the <keyspacelen> argument determines the max number of values for the random number. For instance if set to 10 only rand000000000000 - rand000000000009 range will be allowed.
-P numreq
Pipeline <numreq> requests. Default 1 (no pipeline).
Quiet. Just show query/sec values
Ourput in CSV format
Loop. Run the tests forever
Idle mode. Just open N idle connections and wait.
Debug mode. more verbose.
