redis-sync

A node.js redis replication slave toolkit.

redis-sync implements the replication slave side of the SYNC command, streaming in all commands that modify the dataset. It can also use rdb-parser to parse the dataset dump that precedes the commands. If it can't connect, gets disconnected or if redis is still loading the dataset, redis-sync will keep trying to reconnect - with exponential backoff.

Installation

npm install redis-sync

Usage

var redisSync = require('redis-sync');
var sync = new redisSync.Sync();

sync.on('command', function(command, args) {
  console.log('command', command, args);
});

sync.on('inlineCommand', function(buffers) {
  // the server sends regular PING commands
  console.log('inline command', buffers);
});

sync.on('error', function(err) {
  // listen to 'error' and rely on reconnection logic - otherwise it will get thrown
  console.error(err);
});

sync.connect();

Upon connection, the master will transfer the entire database in RDB format, before sending any commands. redis-sync can use rdb-parser to parse it as it streams in.

You can listen to entity events on the sync object:

sync.on('entity', function(e) {
  console.log(e);
});

or obtain the entity stream as it starts coming in

sync.on('rdb', function(rdb) {
  rdb.on('entity', function(e) {
    console.log(e);
  });
  rdb.on('error', function(err) {
    // listen to 'error' and rely on reconnection logic - otherwise it will get thrown
    console.error(err);
  });
  rdb.on('end', function() {
    console.log('end of rdb');
  });

Note that in case of reconnection redis will send the database again, emitting 'rdb' and 'entity' events again on the same sync object.
