    Build k6 with extensions

    Previously, I have covered an article on Load Testing SQL Databases with k6. For your information, from k6 version 0.29.0 onwards, you can write a k6 Go extension and build your own k6 binaries. This comes in handy as you can use a single framework for load testing different protocols, such as ZMTQ, SQL, Avro, MLLP, etc.

  • xk6-redis

    A k6 extension to test the performance of a Redis instance.

    Fortunately, k6 provides the xk6-redis extension as part of their ecosystem. You can use it directly to build your own custom k6 binaries for testing Redis server.

  • Redis

    Redis is an in-memory database that persists on disk. The data model is key-value, but many different kind of values are supported: Strings, Lists, Sets, Sorted Sets, Hashes, Streams, HyperLogLogs, Bitmaps.

    In this series of k6 extensions, let’s benchmark Redis now. According to redis.io, Redis is a type of in-memory data structure store that can be used as database, cache and message broker.
