Where to find complete Redis documentation? ------------------------------------------- This README is just a fast "quick start" document. You can find more detailed documentation at http://redis.io Building Redis -------------- It is as simple as: % make Redis is just a single binary, but if you want to install it you can use the "make install" target that will copy the binary in /usr/local/bin for default. You can also use "make PREFIX=/some/other/directory install" if you wish to use a different destination. You can run a 32 bit Redis binary using: % make 32bit After building Redis is a good idea to test it, using: % make test NOTE: if after building Redis with a 32 bit target you need to rebuild it with a 64 bit target you need to perform a "make clean" in the root directory of the Redis distribution. Allocator --------- By default Redis compiles and links against jemalloc under Linux, since glibc malloc() has memory fragmentation problems. To force a libc malloc() build use: make FORCE_LIBC_MALLOC=yes In all the other non Linux systems the libc malloc() is used by default. On Mac OS X you can force a jemalloc based build using the following: make USE_JEMALLOC=yes Verbose build ------------- Redis will build with a user friendly colorized output by default. If you want to see a more verbose output use the following: make V=1 Running Redis ------------- To run Redis with the default configuration just type: % cd src % ./redis-server If you want to provide your redis.conf, you have to run it using an additional parameter (the path of the configuration file): % cd src % ./redis-server /path/to/redis.conf Playing with Redis ------------------ You can use redis-cli to play with Redis. Start a redis-server instance, then in another terminal try the following: % cd src % ./redis-cli redis> ping PONG redis> set foo bar OK redis> get foo "bar" redis> incr mycounter (integer) 1 redis> incr mycounter (integer) 2 redis> You can find the list of all the available commands here: http://redis.io/commands Enjoy!
