A Distributed Redis Cluster using Docker Swarm, Docker Compose, and Supervisor

Overview

This repository will start a distributed 6-node Redis Cluster using Docker Swarm with Docker Compose and Supervisor for high availability. The redis instances listen on the host node ports: 6379-6384. There are 3 master nodes and 3 replica nodes. If you are running a local Docker Swarm you can run the entire 6-node cluster locally.

How to Install

  1. Make sure Swarm is installed
docker-redis-cluster $ sudo ./1_install_core.sh
  1. Restart the local consul, docker daemon, swarm manager, and swarm join
docker-redis-cluster $ sudo ./boot_local_docker_services.sh
  1. Point to the Docker Swarm

Please set the terminal environment to use the running Docker Swarm

$ export DOCKER_HOST=localhost:4000
$ env | grep DOCKER
DOCKER_HOST=localhost:4000
$
  1. Confirm the Docker Swarm Membership

Running the swarm locally you should see only 1 node with something similar:

$ docker info
Containers: 0
Images: 0
Role: primary
Strategy: spread
Filters: health, port, dependency, affinity, constraint
Nodes: 1
 localhost.localdomain: localhost:2375
  └ Containers: 0
  └ Reserved CPUs: 0 / 2
  └ Reserved Memory: 0 B / 4.053 GiB
  └ Labels: executiondriver=native-0.2, kernelversion=4.1.7-200.fc22.x86_64, operatingsystem=Fedora 22 (Twenty Two), storagedriver=devicemapper
CPUs: 2
Total Memory: 4.053 GiB
Name: localhost.localdomain
$

Start the Redis Cluster

Assuming consul, docker daemon, swarm manager, and swarm join are running with something similar to:

$ ps auwwx | grep consul | grep -v grep

  1. Make sure no other Redis nodes are running
$ docker ps -a
