Optimization of Redis

In this Post, I am going to cover how to optimized REDIS  (recently i was reading this random blog giving more clear insight on what is redis and what the use of it in real world) instances as per our requirement. if you are not aware about REDIS at all, you can refer to my previous post where i have covered

  1. How To install REDIS on Centos/Redhat servers which goes here.
  2. How To Create Multiple instances of REDIS which goes here.
  3. What is the Best Standard method to configure REDIS which goes here.

So, Lets see how to optimize our redis server. few points you need to keep in mind that which are important while doing optimization and we are going to learn more about shortly.

  1. Remove any errors you are seeing under redis logs
  2. Check the amount of cache size your site is using for each port
  3. Set proper eviction policy for redis keys
  4. Set proper kernel Settings to make redis run properly.

1) Disable HugePage for kernel

  • # echo never > /sys/kernel/mm/transparent_hugepage/enabled
  •  Add above line in /etc/rc.local file as well so that after server reboot it should be there,else your optimized value will be vanish.

2) Tcp-backlog

  • echo 511 > /proc/sys/net/core/somaxconn 
    •  add it to your /etc/rc.local as well


      •   For Full Page Cache set =  (as per the data you get by running below command + 500 MB)
      •   For session/cache = (as per the data you get by running below command + 200 MB)

      Command :   redis-cli -h [Redis Local IP] -p [redis_port] info | grep "used_memory.*human"

      4) Maxmemory-policy

        • maxmemory-policy allkeys-lru

          5) To avoid background save fail under low memory condition

          • Add 'vm.overcommit_memory = 1' to /etc/sysctl.conf (if not present)
          • Run command "sysctl vm.overcommit_memory=1" as root (if not present)

          Solution and Step to fix CVE-2019-5736 Vulnerability - Docker

          Recently a new vulnerability has been discovered in the the internet market having target to Docker services. What is this Vulnerability: In short, Docker service uses another service called as runc which is container run time to spawn and run containers. which simply means if docker task is to create docker images then runc task would be running them and attaching a process to container. So as per the recent discovery by the maintainers of runc, the code of this service was having some bug which can be used by attackers to gain the root level of access of the host machine on which docker containers are running. How it can be Exploited: This vulnerability can be exploited in two ways (1) if the docker images are in use is vulnerable making the containers build from it vulnerable also (2) if somehow attacker got the access of containers and then trying to exploit using the bug present in runc and trying to get root privileges. Solution to Fix Vulnerability: Ce

          How to Generate CSR using Openssl in Linux

          Before Generating CSR ,let see what is Openssl. It is nothing but a core library ,which is used for general purpose in cryptography,it is an open source product which work towards the implementation of SSL and TLS protocols. Talking about openssl, some people called the certificates generated from openssl as "self signed certificate". lets go towards now,creating CSR and private key using openssl command, Just log in to any of your Linux box and run following command as  root user  replacing the required information as per your need . [root@SVR home]#   openssl req -new -newkey  rsa:2048 -nodes -sha256 -out domain_name.csr -keyout domain_name.key -subj "/C=US/ST=state/L=locality/O=organization/OU=organization unit Dept/"  You will get output like : Then check whether ,all the information we have entered ,while creating CSR is proper ,by decoding the CSR from some online tool. First do the cat to the csr file [root@SVR home]#  cat

          Multiple instances of redis

          In the last post I have covered how to install redis server on Centos/Rhel using rpm method and yum method and some troubleshooting skills. In this post i am going to cover how to install and configure redis to run with multiple ports.                                                                           But why we need more ports ? If you have read my earlier post , you already know that by default redis runs on single port 6379, which any one can use it for small website to cache the data. But for heavy website like magento we need to use additional ports along with 6379 to serve different cache from different ports. Like in Magento there is simple cache which is normally stored under /var/cache directory. Then there is Full Page Cache which is stored under /var/full_page_cache and session cache which is stored under /var/session_cache. Note : Discussion about cache/full page cache/session is not under the scope for this document.
