Runs a Redis database server. The server listens on the srv interface on port 6379.


  • Redis


The Redis configuration is fully managed and located in /etc/redis.conf and /etc/conf.d/redis. Currently, the configuration is mostly as provided by the upstream defaults.

The authentication password is automatically generated upon installation and can be read by service users. It can be found in /etc/redis.conf by searching for requirepass.


Interaction with the server happens only in-band using the Redis commands. Please make sure to authenticate yourself by sending the AUTH command followed by the authentication password before sending any other commands.


We monitor by default:

  • whether exactly 1 redis-server process is running
  • whether the TCP port is reachable
