Overview

Redis cache store.

Deployment note: Take care to use a *dedicated Redis cache* rather than pointing this at your existing Redis server. It won't cope well with mixed usage patterns and it won't expire cache entries by default.

Redis cache server setup guide: redis.io/topics/lru-cache

  • Supports vanilla Redis, hiredis, and Redis::Distributed.

  • Supports Memcached-like sharding across Redises with Redis::Distributed.

  • Fault tolerant. If the Redis server is unavailable, no exceptions are raised. Cache fetches are all misses and writes are dropped.

  • Local cache. Hot in-memory primary cache within block/middleware scope.

  • read_multi and write_multi support for Redis mget/mset. Use Redis::Distributed 4.0.1+ for distributed mget support.

  • delete_matched support for Redis KEYS globs.

Constructor Details

#initialize(namespace: nil, compress: true, compress_threshold: 1.kilobyte, expires_in: nil, race_condition_ttl: nil, error_handler: DEFAULT_ERROR_HANDLER, **redis_options) ⇒ RedisCacheStore

Creates a new Redis cache store.

Handles four options: :redis block, :redis instance, single :url string, and multiple :url strings.

Option  Class       Result
:redis  Proc    ->  options[:redis].call
:redis  Object  ->  options[:redis]
:url    String  ->  Redis.new(url: …)
:url    Array   ->  Redis::Distributed.new([{ url: … }, { url: … }, …])

No namespace is set by default. Provide one if the Redis cache server is shared with other apps: namespace: 'myapp-cache'.

Compression is enabled by default with a 1kB threshold, so cached values larger than 1kB are automatically compressed. Disable by passing compress: false or change the threshold by passing compress_threshold: 4.kilobytes.

No expiry is set on cache entries by default. Redis is expected to be configured with an eviction policy that automatically deletes least-recently or -frequently used keys when it reaches max memory. See redis.io/topics/lru-cache for cache server setup.

Race condition TTL is not set by default. This can be used to avoid “thundering herd” cache writes when hot cache entries are expired. See ActiveSupport::Cache::Store#fetch for more.

Instance Method Details

#cleanup(options = nil) ⇒ Object

Cache Store API implementation.

Removes expired entries. Handled natively by Redis least-recently-/ least-frequently-used expiry, so manual cleanup is not supported.

# File 'activesupport/lib/active_support/cache/redis_cache_store.rb', line 311

def cleanup(options = nil)
  super
end

#clear(options = nil) ⇒ Object

Clear the entire cache on all Redis servers. Safe to use on shared servers if the cache is namespaced.

Failsafe: Raises errors.

    else
      redis.with { |c| c.flushdb }
    end
  end
end

#decrement(name, amount = 1, options = nil) ⇒ Object

Cache Store API implementation.

Decrement a cached value. This method uses the Redis decr atomic operator and can only be used on values written with the :raw option. Calling it on a value not stored with :raw will initialize that value to zero.

Failsafe: Raises errors.

        end

end

#delete_matched(matcher, options = nil) ⇒ Object

Cache Store API implementation.

Supports Redis KEYS glob patterns:

h?llo matches hello, hallo and hxllo
h*llo matches hllo and heeeello
h[ae]llo matches hello and hallo, but not hillo
h[^e]llo matches hallo, hbllo, ... but not hello
h[a-b]llo matches hallo and hbllo

Use \ to escape special characters if you want to match them verbatim.

See redis.io/commands/KEYS for more.

Failsafe: Raises errors.

#increment(name, amount = 1, options = nil) ⇒ Object

Cache Store API implementation.

Increment a cached value. This method uses the Redis incr atomic operator and can only be used on values written with the :raw option. Calling it on a value not stored with :raw will initialize that value to zero.
