Redis (http://redis.io) is an open source, advanced key-value cache and store. It is often referred to as a data structure server since keys can contain strings, hashes, lists, sets, sorted sets, bitmaps and hyperloglogs. In order to achieve its outstanding performance, Redis works with an in-memory dataset that can be written to disk. Redis also supports master-slave asynchronous replication.
Redis can be configured in a master or slave configuration. This charm provides a single stand alone implementation of Redis software supporting the master-slave relationship. Go to the Redis web pages for more information on replication.
To deploy this charm first bootstrap your Juju environment and issue the following command:
juju deploy redis
Expose the master if you need to contact them for some reason.
juju expose redis
Redis can be set up with master-slave replication in Juju. This allows the Redis slave to be an exact copy of master server. A master can have multiple slaves.
To set up a master-slave scenario, deploy two services using this charm, one for the master and one the slave server, then relate the two.
juju deploy redis redis1 juju deploy redis redis2 juju add-relation redis1:master redis2:slave
Connecting to the charm
The charm provides a
db relation for services wanting to connect to the Redis
service. When the relation established the following data is passed to the
hostname: the Redis server host name;
port: the port the Redis server is listening to;
password: the optional authentication password, or an empty string if no authentication is required.
To test if Redis software is functioning properly, telnet to the Redis private
ip address using port 6379. First you need to retrieve the private address of
the Redis instance, then you can use
juju ssh to connect to that address,
juju ssh redis/0 telnet `juju run --unit redis/0 "unit-get private-address"` 6379
You can also install the redis-tools package
apt-get install redis-tools
and connect using the Redis client command:
From there you can issue Redis commands to test that Redis is working as intended.
Development and automated testing.
To create a development environment, obtain a copy of the sources, run
make sysdeps to install the required system packages and then
make to set
up the development virtual environment. At this point, it is possible to run
unit and functional tests, including lint checks, by executing
make deploy to deploy the local copy of the charm for development
purposes on your already bootstrapped environment.
make help for further information about available make targets.
