Overview

This module installs and makes basic configs for multiple redis instances on the same node. It installs redis via REPO or from source. (http://redis.io/) It also can configure the monitoring server Sentinel.

Github Master: Build Status

Setup

What redis affects:

  • packages/configuration to compile and install redis from source
  • services/configuration files to run multiple redis and sentinels

Beginning with redis

To just compile and install redis binaries. As default the latest stable release will be used.

  class { 'redis::install': }

To install a specific redis version use the following parameters. Most of the time you will only need redis_version.

  class { 'redis::install':
    redis_version     => '2.8.8',
    redis_build_dir   => '/opt',
    redis_install_dir => '/usr/bin'
  }

To install redis from package use the following parameters. You will need redis_version and redis_package.

  class { 'redis::install':
    redis_version  => '2.8.18-1.el6.remi',
    redis_package  => true,
  }

Run multiple instances on same host

As example run two redis instances on port 6379 and 6380.

node 'redis.my.domain' {

  # install latest stable build.
  class { 'redis::install': }

  redis::server {
    'instance1':
      redis_memory    => '1g',
      redis_ip        => '0.0.0.0',
      redis_port      => 6379,
      redis_mempolicy => 'allkeys-lru',
      redis_timeout   => 0,
      redis_nr_dbs    => 16,
      redis_loglevel  => 'notice',
      running         => true,
      enabled         => true
  }

  redis::server {
    'secondRedis':
      redis_memory    => '112m',
      redis_ip        => '0.0.0.0',
      redis_port      => 6380,
      redis_mempolicy => 'allkeys-lru',
      redis_timeout   => 0,
      redis_nr_dbs    => 2,
      redis_loglevel  => 'warning',
      running         => true,
      enabled         => true
  }
}

Run highly available on different hosts

As example of running a high availability cluster with authentication enabled.

node 'redis-master.my.domain' {

  # install latest stable build.
  class { 'redis::install': }

  redis::server {
    'master':
      redis_memory    => '1g',
      redis_ip        => '0.0.0.0',
      redis_port      => 6379,
      running         => true,
      enabled         => true,
      requirepass     => 'some_really_long_random_password',
  }
}

node 'redis-slave.my.domain' {

  # install latest stable build.
  class { 'redis::install': }

  redis::server {
    'slave':
      redis_memory    => '1g',
      redis_ip        => '0.0.0.0',
      redis_port      => 6379,
      running         => true,
      enabled         => true,
      requirepass     => 'some_really_long_random_password',
      slaveof         => 'redis-master.my.domain 6379',
      masterauth      => 'some_really_long_random_password',
  }
}

Example using Hiera

redis::install::redis_package: true
redis::install::redis_version: '2:2.8.17-1+deb8u1'
redis::servers:
  'name_server':
    requirepass: 'strongpass'
    enabled: true
    redis_ip: '0.0.0.0'
    redis_port: '6800'
    redis_log_dir: '/var/log/redis/'

Setting up sentinel with two monitors

You can create multiple sentinels on one node. But most of the time you will want to create a sentinel with one or more monitors configured.

node 'sentinel.my.domain' {

  # install latest stable build.
  class { 'redis::install': redis_version => '2.8.8' }

  redis::sentinel {'clusters':
    monitors => {
      'mymaster' => {
        master_host             => '127.0.0.1',
        master_port             => 6378,
        quorum                  => 2,
        down_after_milliseconds => 30000,
        parallel-syncs          => 1,
        failover_timeout        => 180000
      },
      'securetRedisCluster' => {
        master_host             => '10.20.30.1',
        master_port             => 6379,
        quorum                  => 2,
        down_after_milliseconds => 30000,
        parallel-syncs          => 5,
        failover_timeout        => 180000,
        auth-pass => 'secret_Password',
        notification-script => '/tmp/notify.sh',
        client-reconfig-script => '/tmp/reconfig.sh'
      }
    }
  }

Usage

Classes and Defined Types

This module compiles and installs redis with the class redis::install. The redis service(s) are configured with the defined type redis::server.

Class: redis::install

This class downloads, compiles and installs redis. It does not configure any redis services. This is done by defined type redis::server.

Parameters within redis::install:

redis_version

The redis version to be installed. By default, the latest stable build will be installed.

redis_build_dir

Default is '/opt/' (string) The dir to store redis source code. This will result in a directoy like '/opt/redis-2.8.8/'

redis_install_dir

Default is '/usr/bin' (string). The dir to which the newly built redis binaries are copied.

redis_user

Redis system user. Default: undef (string) Default 'undef' results to 'root' as redis system user

Some redis install packages create the redis system user by default (at least SLES and Ubuntu provide redis install packages). Normally the log directory and the pid directory are created also by the redis install package. Therefor, these values must be adjusted too.

redis_group

Redis system group. Default: undef (string) Default 'undef' results to 'root' as redis system group

Defined Type: redis::server

Used to configure redis instances. You can setup multiple redis servers on the same node. See the setup examples.
