Switching deletes in Redis from DEL to UNLINK. Yet another quick win :)

I discovered yesterday on the web that Redis UNLINK allowed much faster answers than DEL.

Using Spider bulk edit tools, I updated all services using DEL in their Dao layer or in Lua in a glimpse, comitted, build and pushed images, redeployed, and immediately saw the benefits !

I had a couple of ‘slow’ bulk requests that were taking more than 15 ms, and now, all are below 6ms 🙂

Speedy Redis!
