Corvus is a fast and lightweight redis cluster proxy for redis 3.0 with cluster mode enabled.
Most redis client implementations don't support redis cluster. We have a lot of services relying on redis, which are written in Python, Java, Go, Nodejs etc. It's hard to provide redis client libraries for multiple languages without breaking compatibilities. We used twemproxy before, but it relies on sentinel for high availabity, it also requires restarting to add or remove backend redis instances, which causes service interruption. And twemproxy is single threaded, we have to deploy multiple twemproxy instances for large number of clients, which causes the sa headaches.
Therefore, we made corvus.
- Painless upgrade to official redis cluster from twemproxy.
- Multiple threading.
- Reuseport support.
- Pipeline support.
- Statsd integration.
- Syslog integration.
- Can direct read operations to slaves.
See details in our test results.
- Linux >= 3.9
- Redis <= 3.0.7 (For version up to/including 0.2.3)
If use the releases downloaded from releases page, just make:
With debug mode enabled:
If build from latest source:
git clone https://github.com/eleme/corvus.git cd corvus git submodule update --init make deps # need autoconf make
Binary can be found at
Example configuration file is at corvus.conf.
$ ./src/corvus path/to/corvus.conf
- All single-key commands (like
INCR..) are supported.
- Batch commands are split into multiple single-key commands.
- Commands performing complex multi-key operations like unions or intersections are available as well as long as the keys all belong to the same node.
MGET: split to multiple
MSET: split to multiple
DEL: split to multiple single key
EXISTS: split to multiple single key
PING: ignored and won't be forwarded.
TIME: won't be forwarded to backend redis, information collected in proxy will be returned.
SLOWLOG: return the slowlogs saved by corvus itself. Note that unlike redis, in the slowlog entry there's an additional
remote latencyfield before the
total latencyfield. The slowlog will also log the slowest sub command for multiple-key commands:
EXISTS. The total latency of sub cmd entry will just be the same as its parent cmd.
AUTH: do authentication in proxy.
rewritesub-command to retrieve and manipulate corvus config.
SELECT: ignored if index is
0, won't be forwarded.
EVAL: at least one key should be given. If there are multiple keys, all of them should belong to the same node.
The following commands require all argument keys to belong to the same redis node:
The following commands are not available, such as
KEYS, we can't search keys across
all backend redis instances.
