Laravel asynchronous queue, choose redis or redis?


The original is

Today, I hesitated about the choice of asynchronous queue.


Rabbitmq is a kind of message middleware to realize AMQP (Advanced message queuing protocol). It originated from financial system and used to store and forward messages in distributed system. It has good performance in ease of use, scalability, high availability, etc. Message middleware is mainly used to decouple components. The sender of message does not need to know the existence of message consumer, and vice versa.


It is a key value NoSQL database, which is very active in development and maintenance. Although it is a key value database storage system, it supports MQ function, so it can be used as a lightweight queue service.

Because rabbitmq has a natural publish and subscribe mode, but also provides other modes. Of course, you can also use rabbitmq to do thisGRPC。 But redis doesn’t have this. It needs to be implemented by itself. In other words, when consumer consumption fails, the message body is lost and needs to be handled manually.


Redis: persist the entire redis instance to disk
Rabbitmq: queue, message, you can choose whether to persist or not

After these features, we can get an application scenario

Redis: lightweight, high concurrency, delay sensitive
Real time data analysis, seckill counter, cache, etc

Rabbitmq: heavyweight, high concurrency, asynchronous
Asynchronous processing of batch data, serialization of parallel tasks, load balancing of high load tasks, etc

For example, sending mailbox asynchronously, user behavior of browser, and other non main tasks, and sending socket messages asynchronously can all be handled by rabbitmq message queue. If it’s the main business process, consider using redis, which has high performance.
