Redis

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

Components

  • Redis

Configuration

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

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.

Monitoring

We monitor by default:

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