StackExchange.Redis : Getting started with StackExchange.Redis


Curious Bot - December 1, 2018 - 0 comments

Basic Usage

using StackExchange.Redis;

// ...

// connect to the server
ConnectionMultiplexer connection = ConnectionMultiplexer.Connect("localhost");

// select a database (by default, DB = 0)
IDatabase db = connection.GetDatabase();

// run a command, in this case a GET
RedisValue myVal = db.StringGet("mykey");

Reuse Multiplexer Across Application

class Program
{
private static Lazy<ConnectionMultiplexer> _multiplexer =
new Lazy<ConnectionMultiplexer>(
() => ConnectionMultiplexer.Connect("localhost"),
LazyThreadSafetyMode.ExecutionAndPublication);

static void Main(string[] args)
{
IDatabase db1 = _multiplexer.Value.GetDatabase(1);
IDatabase db2 = _multiplexer.Value.GetDatabase(2);
}
}

Configuration Options

Connect to Redis server and allow admin (risky) commands

ConfigurationOptions options = new ConfigurationOptions()
{
EndPoints = { { "localhost", 6379}},
AllowAdmin = true,
ConnectTimeout = 60*1000,
};
ConnectionMultiplexer multiplexer = ConnectionMultiplexer.Connect(options);

or

ConnectionMultiplexer multiplexer =
ConnectionMultiplexer.Connect("localhost:6379,allowAdmin=True,connectTimeout=60000");

Connect to Redis server via SSL

 ConfigurationOptions options = new ConfigurationOptions()
{
EndPoints = { { "localhost", 6380}},
Ssl = true,
Password = "12345"
};
ConnectionMultiplexer multiplexer = ConnectionMultiplexer.Connect(options);

or

ConnectionMultiplexer multiplexer =
ConnectionMultiplexer.Connect("localhost:6380,ssl=True,password=12345");

Remarks
