Getting Started with Redis Enterprise Software (RS)
This section contains pages to help you get started quickly with a minimum setup and use the various features, environments, and systems offered with Redis Enterprise Software.
In this quick setup guide, we take you through the steps to install RS in a Linux environment to test its capabilities. To run RS in a Docker container for development or testing purposes, go to the Docker Quick Start Guide. The steps to set up a Redis Enterprise Software (RS) cluster with a single node are super simple and go as follows: Step 1: Install Redis Enterprise Software Step 2: Setup a Redis Enterprise Software cluster Step 3: Create a new Redis database Step 4: Connect to your Redis database Step 1: Install Redis Enterprise Software You can download the binaries from the Redis Enterprise Software download site and copy the download package to machine with a Linux-based OS.
RediSearch Quick Start Tutorial For this quick start, you will need the following: A Redis Enterprise Software cluster with set up already complete redis-cli Create a new database that uses the Module In the Redis Modules field, click . Select the RediSearch module. If you want the module to use a custom configuration, click Add configuration and enter the optional custom configuration. Click . For example: Click the Activate button
For testing purposes, you can run Redis Enterprise Software on Docker containers on Linux, Windows, or MacOS. The Redis Enterprise Software container represents a node in an RS Cluster. When deploying RS using Docker, there are a couple of common topologies: Topology #1: The simplest topology is to run a single-node RS Cluster with a single container in a single host machine. This is best for local development or functional testing.
If you need to do a quick performance benchmark of Redis Enterprise, we have a tool just for this; memtier_benchmark. Prerequisites: Redis Enterprise Software installed A cluster configured A database created If you need a quick setup for the prerequisites, please go here. It is recommended to run memtier_benchmark on a separate node that is not part of the cluster being tested. If you run it on a node of the cluster, be mindful that it will affect the performance of both the cluster and memtier_benchmark.
In this guide, we'll set up a CRDB (conflict-free replicated database) spanning across two Redis Enterprise Software clusters for test and development environments. Here are the steps: Step 1: Run two RS Docker containers Step 2: Setup each container as a cluster Step 3: Create a new Redis Enterprise CRDB Step 4: Test connectivity to the CRDB To run a CRDB on installations from the RS download package, setup two RS installations and continue from Step 2.
