Redis Master/Slave Setup

tested on debian/buster

Install

grab the latest release

curl -fsSL https://packages.redis.io/gpg | gpg --dearmor -o /usr/share/keyrings/redis-archive-keyring.gpg
echo "deb [signed-by=/usr/share/keyrings/redis-archive-keyring.gpg] https://packages.redis.io/deb $(lsb_release -cs) main" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/redis.list
apt update

on servers

apt install redis redis-server
redis-server --version

on clients (incl. the servers themselves)

apt install redis-tools
redis-cli --version

tune the kernel

cd /etc/
mv -i sysctl.conf sysctl.conf.dist
grep -vE '^[[:space:]]*#|^[[:space:]]*$' sysctl.conf.dist > sysctl.conf.clean
grep -vE '^[[:space:]]*#|^[[:space:]]*$' sysctl.conf.dist > sysctl.conf
vi sysctl.conf # was therefore empty

net.core.somaxconn = 1024
vm.overcommit_memory = 1

    sysctl -p

Server setup

assuming internal and trusted network

cd /etc/redis/
mv -i redis.conf redis.conf.dist
grep -vE '^#|^$' redis.conf.dist > redis.conf.clean
grep -vE '^#|^$' redis.conf.dist > redis.conf
vi redis.conf

bind 0.0.0.0

# default acl user
#requirepass SOME-PASSWORD

and on the slave also as follows

assuming redis1 is defined as static name resolution

slaveof redis1 6379
#masterauth SOME-PASSWORD

Ready to go

systemctl restart redis-server
netstat -lntup | grep redis

systemctl status redis-server # not enabled yet
systemctl enable redis-server

Operations

if you enabled authentication for default acl user

export REDISCLI_AUTH=SOME-PASSWORD

List databases

redis-cli info | grep ^db

Print the key names of a given database, say db1 (default is db0)

select 1
keys *
