In this episode of TNS Tutorials, we take a look back at Commissar, an early-stage, open source, use case-based performance tool for Redis. It was designed to do use case scenario testing, as opposed to the benchmarks that only test speed.
During the tutorial, 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 “observers” via environment variables.
