redis Cookbook

This cookbook will install Redis Server.

Requirements

Supported Platforms

  • ubuntu/xenial64
  • ubuntu/trusty64
  • centos/7
  • centos/6
  • debian/jessie64
  • debian/wheezy64

Chef

  • Chef '>= 12.5'

Cookbooks

  • apt

Attributes

  • node['redis']['port'] => '6379' This is the port Redis Server will listen on. Port 6379 is the standard port for Redis Server.
  • node['redis']['bind'] => '127.0.0.1' This is the interface Redis Server will bind to. Use 0.0.0.0 to bind to all interfaces.
  • node['redis']['maxmemory'] => '1gb' This is the maximum amount of memory Redis Server will use. The size is case insensitive.

Usage

Here's an example redis role that will install Redis. This example changes the memory limit to 4GB.

name 'redis'
description 'install redis'

override_attributes(
    'redis' => {
        'maxmemory' => '4GB'
    }
)

run_list(
    'recipe[cop_redis::default]'
)

Testing

Testing is handled with ServerSpec, via Test Kitchen, which uses Docker to spin up VMs.

ServerSpec and Test Kitchen are bundled in the ChefDK package.

Dependencies

$ brew cask install chefdk
$ chef gem install kitchen-docker
$ brew install docker docker-machine
$ docker-machine create default --driver virtualbox

Running

Get a listing of your instances with:

$ kitchen list

Run Chef on an instance, in this case default-ubuntu-1204, with:

$ kitchen converge default-ubuntu-1204

Destroy all instances with:

$ kitchen destroy

Run through and test all the instances in serial by running:

$ kitchen test

Notes

  • The Berksfile.lock file has been purposely omitted, as we don't care about upstream dependencies.
