A benchmark of KeyDB as an open-source, multi-threaded fork of the Redis server now developed by Snapchat. The developers self-describe the KeyDB in-memory data structure store as a "faster drop in alternative to Redis".

To run this test with the Phoronix Test Suite, the basic command is: phoronix-test-suite benchmark keydb.
