redis_pool

Synopsis

minimalistic redis client for erlang.

Derived from:

Active forks:

Overview

redis_pool is a redis client implementation that only uses redis's multi bulk command protocol.

It implements connection pools, timeout management, automatic reconnect on errors and a very simple sharding mechanism.

Raw examples

0> redis_pool:start_link().  % connect to default redis port on localhost
{ok,<0.33.0>}
1> redis_pool:expand(10).
ok
2> redis:q(["set", "foo", "bar"]).
{ok,<<"OK">>}
3> redis:q(["get", "foo"]).
{ok,<<"bar">>}
4> redis:q(["sadd", "bar", "a"]).
{ok,1}
5> redis:q(["sadd", "bar", "b"]).
{ok,1}
6> redis:q(["sadd", "bar", "c"]).
{ok,1}
7> redis:q(["lrange", "0", "-1"]).
{error,<<"ERR wrong number of arguments for 'lrange' command">>}
7> redis:q(["lrange", "bar", "0", "-1"]).
{error,<<"ERR Operation against a key holding the wrong kind of value">>}
8> redis:q(["smembers", "bar"]).
[{ok,<<"c">>},{ok,<<"a">>},{ok,<<"b">>}]
9> redis:q(["incr", "counter"]).
{ok,1}

Multiple Pools

1> redis_pool:start_link(one).
{ok,<0.33.0>}
2> redis_pool:start_link(two).
{ok,<0.36.0>}
3> redis_pool:start_link(three).
{ok,<0.39.0>}
4> redis_pool:start_link(four). 
{ok,<0.42.0>}
5> redis_pool:expand(one, 10).
ok
6> redis_pool:expand(two, 10).
ok
7> redis_pool:expand(three, 10).
ok
8> redis_pool:expand(four, 10). 
ok
9> redis_shard:start_link(shard, [one, two, three, four]).
{ok,<0.91.0>}
10> redis:q(redis_shard:pool(shard, "foo"), ["set", "foo", "bar"]).
{ok, <<"OK">>}

Multiple Pools with Manager

1> redis_sup:start_link().
{ok,<0.33.0>}
2> redis_shard:start_link(main, []).
{ok,<0.35.0>}
3> redis_manager:start_link(main, [{one, [10]}, {two, [10]}, {three, [10]}, {four, [10]}]).
{ok,<0.37.0>}
4> redis:q(redis_shard:pool(main, "foo"), ["set", "foo", "bar"]).
{ok,<<"OK">>}

Pub/Sub

%% the standard query function can be used to publish data
redis:q([<<"PUBLISH">>, Key, Value])

  Types:

    Key, Value = binary()

%% the connect method starts a supervised redis child pid with a
%% socket open to the redis server in active mode
redis_subscribe:connect(Key, Opts, Callback) -> {ok, Pid}

  Types:

    Key = binary()
    Opts = list()
    Callback = {M,F,A} | fun() | {fun(), A}
    M = atom()
    F = atom()
    A = list()
    Pid = pid()

1> redis_pool:add_pool(1).
ok
2> redis:q([<<"PUBLISH">>, <<"foo">>, <<"sandwich">>]).
{ok,0}
3> redis_subscribe:connect(<<"foo">>, [], fun(Val) -> io:format("recv'd ~p~n", [Val]) end).
{ok,<0.65.0>}
4> redis:q([<<"PUBLISH">>, <<"foo">>, <<"sandwich">>]).
recv'd {message,<<"foo">>,<<"sandwich">>}
{ok,1}
5> redis_subscribe:connect(<<"bar">>, [], {fun(Arg, Val) -> io:format("recv'd ~p, additional arg: ~p~n", [Val, Arg]) end, [myarg]}).
{ok,<0.68.0>}
6> redis:q([<<"PUBLISH">>, <<"bar">>, <<"birthday cake">>]).
recv'd {message,<<"bar">>,<<"birthday cake">>}, additional arg: myarg
{ok,1}

Breakdance/Breakdown

redis_pool:start_link() -> ok | {error, Reason}
redis_pool:start_link(Name) -> ok | {error, Reason}
redis_pool:start_link(Name, Opts) -> ok | {error, Reason}
redis_pool:start_link(Name, Opts, MaxRestarts, Interval) -> ok | {error, Reason}

  Types:

    Name = atom()
    MaxRestarts = Interval = number()
    Options = [Opt]
    Opt = {atom(), Value}
    Value = term()

  Connects to redis server

  The available options are:

  {ip, Ip}

    If the host has several network interfaces, this option
    specifies which one to use.  Default is "127.0.0.1".

  {port, Port}

    Specify which local port number to use.  Default is 6379.

  {pass, Pass}

    Specify to password to auth with upon a successful connect.
    Default is <<>>.

  {db, DbIndex}

    Sepcify the db to use.  Default is 0.

  Name represents the name of the pool you are creating, by default
  it's redis_pool.

  MaxRestarts and Interval stop the restart cycle when the
  connections in the pool die too often, where often is defined as
  MaxRestarts in Interval.

redis_pool:expand(NewSize) -> ok
redis_pool:expand(Name, NewSize) -> ok

  Types:

    NewSize = number()

      Set the connection pool to the given size.

    Name = atom()

      Send the call to a specific pool. By default redis_pool.

redis_pool:pool_size() -> number()
redis_pool:pool_size(Name) -> number()

  Types

    Name = atom()

  Returns the current number of live connections in the pool.

redis_pool:pid() -> pid() | {error, term()}
redis_pool:pid(Name) -> pid() | {error, term()}

  Types

    Name = atom()

  Return a connection from the specified pool or from the default one.

redis_pool:cycle(NewOpts) -> ok
redis_pool:cycle(Name, NewOpts) -> ok

  Types

    NewOpts = [NewOpt]
    NewOpt = {atom(), Value}
    Value = term()
    Name = atom()

  Recreate every connection in the pool using the provided NewOpts.
  NewOpts follows the same rules as in redis_pool:start_link/4.

  Name specifies the name of the connection pool or redis_pool if not
  provided.

redis_pool:info() -> term()
redis_pool:info(Name) -> term()

  Types

    Name = atom()

  Returns the current state of the connection pool.

redis_shard:start_link(Servers) -> ok | {error, Reason}
redis_shard:start_link(Name, Servers) -> ok | {error, Reason}

  Types

    Servers = [Server]
    Server = term()
    Name = atom()

    Starts a shard manager that splits evenly an md5 interval
    across the given terms in order.

    The suggested way of using this is by having each Server be the
    name of a connection pool. But you can also store additional
    information. You'll however need to extract the label to the
    connection pool in order to access it.

redis_shard:pool(Key) -> atom() | {error, Reason}
redis_shard:pool(Name, Key) -> atom() | {error, Reason}

  Types

    Key = number() | list()
    Name = atom()

    Returns from the given shard the label that contains the
    specified key or index.

redis_shard:update_shards(Servers) -> ok
redis_shard:update_shards(Name, Servers) -> ok

  Types

    Servers = [Server]
    Server = term()
    Name = atom()

  Updates the initial configuration and redistributes the shards to
  new servers. No consistency checks are done at this point.

redis:q(Parts) -> {ok, binary()} | {ok, int()} | {error, binary()}
redis:q(Name, Parts) -> {ok, binary()} | {ok, int()} | {error, binary()}
redis:q(Name, Parts, Timeout) -> {ok, binary()} | {ok, int()} | {error, binary()}

  Types

    Parts = [Part]

      The sections, in order, of the command to be executed

    Part = binary() | list()

      A section of a redis command

  Tell redis to execute a command.

    Name = atom()

      Execute a command in a specific pool of connections

    Timeout = number()

      Specify a timeout in ms after which the call can be considered
      failed and the connection can be recycled.
