new Redis([port], [host], [options])

Creates a Redis instance

Param Type Default Description
[port] number | string | Object 6379 Port of the Redis server, or a URL string(see the examples below), or the options object(see the third argument).
[host] string | Object "localhost" Host of the Redis server, when the first argument is a URL string, this argument is an object represents the options.
[options] Object Other options.
[options.port] number 6379 Port of the Redis server.
[options.host] string "localhost" Host of the Redis server.
[options.family] string 4 Version of IP stack. Defaults to 4.
[options.path] string null Local domain socket path. If set the port, host and family will be ignored.
[options.keepAlive] number 0 TCP KeepAlive on the socket with a X ms delay before start. Set to a non-number value to disable keepAlive.
[options.noDelay] boolean true Whether to disable the Nagle's Algorithm. By default we disable it to reduce the latency.
[options.connectionName] string null Connection name.
[options.db] number 0 Database index to use.
[options.password] string null If set, client will send AUTH command with the value of this option when connected.
[options.dropBufferSupport] boolean false Drop the buffer support for better performance. This option is recommended to be enabled when handling large array response and you don't need the buffer support.
[options.enableReadyCheck] boolean true When a connection is established to the Redis server, the server might still be loading the database from disk. While loading, the server not respond to any commands. To work around this, when this option is true, ioredis will check the status of the Redis server, and when the Redis server is able to process commands, a ready event will be emitted.
[options.enableOfflineQueue] boolean true By default, if there is no active connection to the Redis server, commands are added to a queue and are executed once the connection is "ready" (when enableReadyCheck is true, "ready" means the Redis server has loaded the database from disk, otherwise means the connection to the Redis server has been established). If this option is false, when execute the command when the connection isn't ready, an error will be returned.
[options.connectTimeout] number 10000 The milliseconds before a timeout occurs during the initial connection to the Redis server.
[options.autoResubscribe] boolean true After reconnected, if the previous connection was in the subscriber mode, client will auto re-subscribe these channels.
[options.autoResendUnfulfilledCommands] boolean true If true, client will resend unfulfilled commands(e.g. block commands) in the previous connection when reconnected.
[options.lazyConnect] boolean false By default, When a new Redis instance is created, it will connect to Redis server automatically. If you want to keep the instance disconnected until a command is called, you can pass the lazyConnect option to the constructor: javascript var redis = new Redis({ lazyConnect: true }); // No attempting to connect to the Redis server here. // Now let's connect to the Redis server redis.get('foo', function () { });
[options.tls] Object TLS connection support. See https://github.com/luin/ioredis#tls-options
[options.keyPrefix] string "''" The prefix to prepend to all keys in a command.
[options.retryStrategy] function See "Quick Start" section
[options.maxRetriesPerRequest] number See "Quick Start" section
[options.reconnectOnError] function See "Quick Start" section
[options.readOnly] boolean false Enable READONLY mode for the connection. Only available for cluster mode.
[options.stringNumbers] boolean false Force numbers to be always returned as JavaScript strings. This option is necessary when dealing with big numbers (exceed the [-2^53, +2^53] range).

Example

var Redis = require('ioredis');

var redis = new Redis();

var redisOnPort6380 = new Redis(6380);
var anotherRedis = new Redis(6380, '192.168.100.1');
var unixSocketRedis = new Redis({ path: '/tmp/echo.sock' });
var unixSocketRedis2 = new Redis('/tmp/echo.sock');
var urlRedis = new Redis('redis://user:password@redis-service.com:6379/');
var urlRedis2 = new Redis('//localhost:6379');
var authedRedis = new Redis(6380, '192.168.100.1', { password: 'password' });

redis.connect([callback]) β‡’ Promise.<void>

Create a connection to Redis. This method will be invoked automatically when creating a new Redis instance unless lazyConnect: true is passed.

When calling this method manually, a Promise is returned, which will be resolved when the connection status is ready.

Kind: instance method of Redis
Access: public

Param Type
[callback] function

redis.disconnect()

Disconnect from Redis.

This method closes the connection immediately, and may lose some pending replies that haven't written to client. If you want to wait for the pending replies, use Redis#quit instead.

Kind: instance method of Redis
Access: public

redis.end()

Deprecated

Disconnect from Redis.

Kind: instance method of Redis

redis.duplicate()

Create a new instance with the same options as the current one.

Kind: instance method of Redis
Access: public
Example

var redis = new Redis(6380);
var anotherRedis = redis.duplicate();

redis.monitor([callback])

Listen for all requests received by the server in real time.

This command will create a new connection to Redis and send a MONITOR command via the new connection in order to avoid disturbing the current connection.

Kind: instance method of Redis
Access: public

Param Type Description
[callback] function The callback function. If omit, a promise will be returned.

Example

var redis = new Redis();
redis.monitor(function (err, monitor) {
  // Entering monitoring mode.
  monitor.on('monitor', function (time, args, source, database) {
    console.log(time + ": " + util.inspect(args));
  });
});

// supports promise as well as other commands
redis.monitor().then(function (monitor) {
  monitor.on('monitor', function (time, args, source, database) {
    console.log(time + ": " + util.inspect(args));
  });
});
