Using Redis Enterprise Software on Pivotal Platform
This topic describes how to use Redis Enterprise Software (RS) for Pivotal Platform.
Creating a Redis Enterprise database instance via cf CLI and service broker using service plans
Perform ‘cf login’ to your foundation.
cf create-service redislabs [SERVICE PLAN] [SERVICE INSTANCE]where SERVICE PLAN uses one of the available Redis Enterprise service plans and SERVICE INSTANCE is the new service instance name.
# cf create-service redislabs small-redis redis2 Creating service instance redis2 in org RedisLabs space space1 as admin... OK
Available service plans are listed in either:
The tile’s Ops Manager configuration, under Settings > Service Plans:
Apps Manager > Marketplace screen.
Creating a Redis Enterprise database instance via Pivotal Platform Apps Manager
From Pivotal Platform Apps Manager go to Marketplace and select Redis Enterprise on Pivotal Platform.
Select a plan from the available plans listed and click Select This Plan.
Write an instance name and optionally choose to bind to a deployed app then click Create.
Accessing the Redis Enterprise cluster UI
Connect to the Redis Enterprise admin console by placing the Cluster Management Console Subdomain in the host part of the following URL:
https://[Cluster Management Console Subdomain].[System Domain].
Log in using the Administrator email account and password you specified in the tile configuration above.Note:Do not create or delete databases through the Redis Enterprise Cluster UI. Use the cf creates/delete/update-service commands or use the Pivotal Apps Manager admin console to create and manage databases through available plans.
Installing a license key in an existing cluster
Connect to the Redis Enterprise UI per the instructions above.
Log in using the Administrator email account and password you specified in the tile configuration.
Navigate to the Settings section and then the General tab.
Paste the license key you received from Redis Labs into the Cluster key form field and click the Save button.Note:If your license is already expired, changes to the cluster configuration, such as a version upgrade, cause cluster failure. Always apply a valid license key before making such changes.
Connect to Redis database using redis-cli
redis-cli is a simple command-line tool for interacting with Redis Database.
To connect to Redis Database, do the following:
Connect to one of the IP addresses of the nodes through SSH and find
Change to the
/opt/redislabs/bindirectory and run
redis-clito connect to port 12000 and to the database-endpoint that is reported in the database properties after you created the database.
sudo /opt/redislabs/bin/redis-cli -p 12000 -h database-endpoint
To store and retrieve a key in
database1, run the following commands:
set key1 123 get key1
127.0.0.1:16653> set key1 123 OK 127.0.0.1:16653> get key1 "123"
