The Top 5 Redis Performance Metrics

Evolve your approach to Application Performance Monitoring by adopting five best practices that are outlined and explored in this e-book, brought to you in partnership with BMC.

Redis is an in-memory, persistent, key-value store that supports more than strings.  MongoDB doesn't have in-memory and key-value attributes while Memcached doesn't have persistence or support for more than strings.  Redis, by contrast, doesn't have support for larger-than-memory datasets and it's not multithreaded.  

This is illustrated in a new document outlining the top 5 performance metrics you should look out for if you decide to use Redis, which is a pretty hot data store right now.
