Beyond Benchmarking with Commissar, a Use Case Performance Tool for Redis

Commissar is an early-stage, open source, use case-based performance tool for Redis. It is designed to do use case scenario testing, as opposed to the benchmarks that only test speed.

At RedisConf 2015 last week in San Francisco at the Palace of Fine Arts, Bill Anderson of Rackspace showed, as an example, how Commissar simulates storing results from a game of Tic-Tac-Toe.  As he writes on GitHub, the simulation can be configured with a given number of game servers, user count, matches per user, and number of âobserversâ. These are all done via environment variables.

This allows you to leverage tools such as Docker to alter each run while maintaining a consistent binary.
