Modules included in the container

Configuring the Redis server

This image is based on the official image of Redis from Docker. By default, the container starts with Redis' default configuration and all included modules loaded.

You can, of course, override the defaults. This can be done either by providing additional command line arguments to the docker command, or by providing your own Redis configuration file.

Running the container with command line arguments

You can provide Redis with configuration directives directly from the docker command. For example, the following will start the container, mount the host's /home/user/data volume to the container's /data, load the Rebloom module, and configure Redis' working directory to /data so that the data will actually be persisted there.

$ docker run \
  -p 6379:6379 \
  -v /home/user/data:/data \
  redislabs/redismod \
  --loadmodule /usr/lib/redis/modules/ \
  --dir /data

Running the container with a configuration file

Assuming that you have put together a configration file such as the following, and have stored it at /home/user/redis.conf:

requirepass foobared
dir /data
loadmodule /usr/lib/redis/modules/

And then execute something along these lines:

$ docker run \
  -p 6379:6379 \
  -v /home/user/data:/data \
  -v /home/user/redis.conf:/usr/local/etc/redis/redis.conf \
  redislabs/redismod \

Your dockerized Redis server will start and will be listening at the default Redis port (6379) of the host. In addition, the Redis server will require password authentication ("foobared"), will store the data to the container's /data (that is the host's volume /home/user/data), and will have loaded only the Rebloom module.
