Hot sync two Redis databases using dumps.
There's no easy way to get/sync data from an AWS ElastiCache Redis cluster.
@bdq: Hey, let's keep our staging Redis containers in sync with our AWS ElastiCache.
BGSAVEand copy the .rdb?
@nixtrace: Yeah, awesome, let me try... Nope, not supported.
@bdq: Ah, that's bad. We'll have to set the containers as
@nixtrace: That makes sense, doing it... Nope, not supported.
@bdq: WAT. Let's use an open source tool to do the sync?
@nixtrace: Most of them use
KEYSto get the keys, we'd DoS our own server.
@bdq: Let's write a script?
@nixtrace: Tried. Bash doesn't like key dumps, Ruby/Python + deps take more space than Redis inside the container.
Rump is able to transfer keys from an ElastiCache cluster or any Redis server to another Redis server, by only using
KEYSto avoid DoS your own server.
- Can sync any key type.
- Drops the TTL on purpose, since it wouldn't be in sync.
- Doesn't use any temp file.
- Uses buffered channels to optimize slow source servers.
- Uses pipelines to minimize network roundtrips.
