深入剖析 redis AOF 持久化策略

本篇主要讲的是 AOF 持久化,了解 AOF 的数据组织方式和运作机制。redis 主要在 aof.c 中实现 AOF 的操作。

数据结构 rio

redis AOF 持久化同样借助了 struct rio. 详细内容在《深入剖析 redis RDB 持久化策略》中有介绍。

AOF 数据组织方式

假设 redis 内存有「name:Jhon」的键值对,那么进行 AOF 持久化后,AOF 文件有如下内容:

*2     # 2个参数
$6     # 第一个参数长度为 6
SELECT     # 第一个参数
$1     # 第二参数长度为 1
8     # 第二参数
*3     # 3个参数
$3     # 第一个参数长度为 4
SET     # 第一个参数
$4     # 第二参数长度为 4
name     # 第二个参数
$4     # 第三个参数长度为 4
Jhon     # 第二参数长度为 4

所以对上面的内容进行恢复,能得到熟悉的一条 redis 命令:SELECT 8;SET name Jhon. 可以想象的是,redis 遍历内存数据集中的每个 key-value 对,依次写入磁盘中;redis 启动的时候,从 AOF 文件中读取数据,恢复数据。

AOF 持久化运作机制

和 redis RDB 持久化运作机制不同,redis AOF 有后台执行和边服务边备份两种方式。

aof_persistence

1)AOF 后台执行的方式和 RDB 有类似的地方,fork 一个子进程,主进程仍进行服务,子进程执行 AOF 持久化,数据被 dump 到磁盘上。与 RDB 不同的是,后台子进程持久化过程中,主进程会记录期间的所有数据变更(主进程还在服务),并存储在 server.aof_rewrite_buf_blocks 中;后台子进程结束后,redis 更新缓存追加到 AOF 文件中,是 RDB 持久化所不具备的。

来说说更新缓存这个东西。redis 服务器产生数据变更的时候,譬如 set name Jhon,不仅仅会修改内存数据集,也会记录此更新(修改)操作,记录的方式就是上面所说的数据组织方式。

更新缓存可以存储在 server.aof_buf 中,你可以把它理解为一个小型临时中转站,所有累积的更新缓存都会先放入这里,它会在特定时机写入文件或者插入到 server.aof_rewrite_buf_blocks 下链表(下面会详述);server.aof_buf 中的数据在 propagrate() 添加,在涉及数据更新的地方都会调用 propagrate() 以累积变更。更新缓存也可以存储在 server.aof_rewrite_buf_blocks,这是一个元素类型为 struct aofrwblock 的链表,你可以把它理解为一个仓库,当后台有 AOF 子进程的时候,会将累积的更新缓存(在 server.aof_buf 中)插入到链表中,而当 AOF 子进程结束,它会被整个写入到文件。两者是有关联的。

下面是后台执行的主要代码:

// 启动后台子进程,执行 AOF 持久化操作。bgrewriteaofCommand(),startAppendOnly(),serverCron() 中会调用此函数
/* This is how rewriting of the append only file in background works:
*
* 1) The user calls BGREWRITEAOF
* 2) Redis calls this function, that forks():
*    2a) the child rewrite the append only file in a temp file.
*    2b) the parent accumulates differences in server.aof_rewrite_buf.
* 3) When the child finished '2a' exists.
* 4) The parent will trap the exit code, if it's OK, will append the
*    data accumulated into server.aof_rewrite_buf into the temp file, and
*    finally will rename(2) the temp file in the actual file name.
*    The the new file is reopened as the new append only file. Profit!

}

2)边服务边备份的方式,即 redis 服务器会把所有的数据变更存储在 server.aof_buf 中,并在特定时机将更新缓存写入预设定的文件(server.aof_filename)。特定时机有三种:

  1. 进入事件循环之前

  2. redis 服务器定时程序 serverCron() 中

  3. 停止 AOF 策略的 stopAppendOnly() 中

redis 无非是不想服务器突然崩溃终止,导致过多的数据丢失。redis 默认是每两秒钟进行一次边服务边备份,即隔两秒将累积的写入文件。

redis 为什么取消直接在本进程进行 AOF 持久化的方法?原因可能是产生一个 AOF 文件要比 RDB 文件消耗更多的时间;如果在当前进程执行 AOF 持久化,会占用服务进程(主进程)较多的时间,停止服务的时间也更长(?)

下面是边服务边备份的主要代码:

// 同步磁盘;将所有累积的更新 server.aof_buf 写入磁盘
/* Write the append only file buffer on disk.
*
* Since we are required to write the AOF before replying to the client,
* and the only way the client socket can get a write is entering when the
* the event loop, we accumulate all the AOF writes in a memory
* buffer and write it on disk using this function just before entering
* the event loop again.
*
* About the 'force' argument:
*
* When the fsync policy is set to 'everysec' we may delay the flush if there
* is still an fsync() going on in the background thread, since for instance
* on Linux write(2) will be blocked by the background fsync anyway.
* When this happens we remember that there is some aof buffer to be
* flushed ASAP, and will try to do that in the serverCron() function.
*
* However if force is set to 1 we'll write regardless of the background
* fsync. */
void flushAppendOnlyFile(int force) {
    ssize_t nwritten;
    int sync_in_progress = 0;

细说更新缓存

上面两次提到了「更新缓存」,它即是 redis 累积的数据变更。

更新缓存可以存储在 server.aof_buf 中,可以存储在 server.server.aof_rewrite_buf_blocks 连表中。他们的关系是:每一次数据变更记录都会写入 server.aof_buf 中,同时如果后台子进程在持久化,变更记录还会被写入 server.server.aof_rewrite_buf_blocks 中。server.aof_buf 会在特定时期写入指定文件,server.server.aof_rewrite_buf_blocks 会在后台持久化结束后追加到文件。

redis 源码中是这么实现的:propagrate()->feedAppendOnlyFile()->aofRewriteBufferAppend()

注释:feedAppendOnlyFile() 会把更新添加到 server.aof_buf;接下来会有一个判断,如果存在 AOF 子进程,则调用 aofRewriteBufferAppend() 将 server.aof_buf 中的所有数据插入到 server.aof_rewrite_buf_blocks 链表。

一副可以缓解视力疲劳的图片——AOF 持久化运作机制:

how_aof_works

下面是主要的代码:

// 向 AOF 和从机发布数据更新
/* Propagate the specified command (in the context of the specified database id)
* to AOF and Slaves.
*
* flags are an xor between:
* + REDIS_PROPAGATE_NONE (no propagation of command at all)
* + REDIS_PROPAGATE_AOF (propagate into the AOF file if is enabled)
* + REDIS_PROPAGATE_REPL (propagate into the replication link)
*/

两种数据落地的方式,就是 AOF 的两个主线。因此,redis AOF 持久化机制有两条主线:后台执行和边服务边备份,抓住这两点就能理解 redis AOF 了。

这里有一个疑问,两条主线都会涉及文件的写:后台执行会写一个 AOF 文件,边服务边备份也会写一个,以哪个为准?

后台持久化的数据首先会被写入「temp-rewriteaof-bg-%d.aof」,其中「%d」是 AOF 子进程 id;待 AOF 子进程结束后,「temp-rewriteaof-bg-%d.aof」会被以追加的方式打开,继而写入 server.aof_rewrite_buf_blocks 中的更新缓存,最后「temp-rewriteaof-bg-%d.aof」文件被命名为 server.aof_filename,所以之前的名为 server.aof_filename 的文件会被删除,也就是说边服务边备份写入的文件会被删除。边服务边备份的数据会被一直写入到 server.aof_filename 文件中。

因此,确实会产生两个文件,但是最后都会变成 server.aof_filename 文件。

这里还有一个疑问,既然有了后台持久化,为什么还要边服务边备份?边服务边备份时间长了会产生数据冗余甚至备份过旧的数据,而后台持久化可以消除这些东西。看,这里是 redis 的双保险。

AOF 恢复过程

AOF 的数据恢复过程设计实在是棒极了,它模拟一个服务过程。redis 首先虚拟一个客户端,读取 AOF 文件恢复 redis 命令和参数;然后就像服务客户端一样执行命令相应的函数,从而恢复数据。这些过程主要在loadAppendOnlyFile() 中实现。

// 加载 AOF 文件,恢复数据
/* Replay the append log file. On error REDIS_OK is returned. On non fatal
* error (the append only file is zero-length) REDIS_ERR is returned. On
* fatal error an error message is logged and the program exists. */
int loadAppendOnlyFile(char *filename) {
    struct redisClient *fakeClient;
    FILE *fp = fopen(filename,"r");
    struct redis_stat sb;
    int old_aof_state = server.aof_state;
    long loops = 0;

    // 文件大小不能为 0
    if (fp && redis_fstat(fileno(fp),&sb) != -1 && sb.st_size == 0) {
        server.aof_current_size = 0;
        fclose(fp);
        return REDIS_ERR;
    }

    if (fp == NULL) {
        redisLog(REDIS_WARNING,"Fatal error: can't open the append log file for reading: %s",strerror(errno));
        exit(1);
    }

    // 正在执行 AOF 加载操作,于是暂时禁止 AOF 的所有操作,以免混淆
    /* Temporarily disable AOF, to prevent EXEC from feeding a MULTI
     * to the same file we're about to read. */
    server.aof_state = REDIS_AOF_OFF;

    // 虚拟出一个客户端,即 redisClient
    fakeClient = createFakeClient();
    startLoading(fp);

    while(1) {
        int argc, j;
        unsigned long len;
        robj **argv;
        char buf[128];
        sds argsds;

        // 每循环 1000 次,在恢复数据的同时,服务器也为客户端服务。aeProcessEvents() 会进入事件循环
        /* Serve the clients from time to time */
        if (!(loops++ % 1000)) {
            loadingProgress(ftello(fp));
            aeProcessEvents(server.el, AE_FILE_EVENTS|AE_DONT_WAIT);
        }

AOF 的适用场景

如果对数据比较关心,分秒必争,可以用 AOF 持久化,而且 AOF 文件很容易进行分析。
