    slapos/recipe/redis: Add support for UNIX sockets · cbbfd405
    Kirill Smelkov authored
    It is well known that UNIX sockets are faster than TCP over loopback.
    E.g. on my machine according to lmbench[1] they have ~ 2 times
    lower latency and ~ 2-3 times more throughput compared to TCP over
        *Local* Communication latencies in microseconds - smaller is better

    The same ratio holds for our std shuttle servers.
    API to work with unix sockets is essentially the same as with TCP/UDP.
    Because of that it is easy to support both TCP and UNIX socket in one
    software, and this way a lot of software support unix sockets out of the
    box, including Redis.
    Because of lower latencies and higher throughput, for performance
    reasons, it makes sense to interconnect services on one machine via unix
    sockets and talk via TCP only to outside world.
    Here we add support for unix sockets to Redis recipe.
