Using Redis with API throttling
Martini's throttling feature allows you to limit the number of allowed service invocations within a specified amount of time. To do this, Martini needs to keep a record of service invocations that have already occurred. By default, Martini stores this data in an in-memory data store, but it's possible to configure Martini to use Redis instead.
