This module is an implementation of a cache system designed to work with a Redis server. It uses hiredis client library to connect to either a single Redis server instance, or to a Redis Server inside a Redis Cluster. It uses the Key-Value interface exported from the core.
memory costs are no longer on the server
many servers can be used inside a cluster, so the memory is virtually unlimited
the cache is 100% persistent. A restart of OpenSIPS server will not affect the DB. The Redis DB is also persistent so it can also be restarted without loss of information.
redis is an open-source project so it can be used to exchange data with various other applicationsr
By creating a Redis Cluster, multiple OpenSIPS instances can easily share key-value information
The following libraries or applications must be installed before running OpenSIPS with this module loaded:
On the latest Debian based distributions, hiredis can be installed by running 'apt-get install libhiredis-dev' Alternatively, if hiredis is not available on your OS repos, hiredis can be downloaded from: https://github.com/antirez/hiredis . Download the archive, extract sources, run make,sudo make install.
The urls of the server groups that OpenSIPS will connect to in order to use the from script cache_store,cache_fetch, etc operations. It can be set more than one time. The prefix part of the URL will be the identifier that will be used from the script.
Example 1.1. Set
... modparam("cachedb_redis", "cachedb_url","redis:group1://localhost:6379/"); modparam("cachedb_redis", "cachedb_url","redis:cluster1://random_url:8888/"); ...
Example 1.2. Use Redis servers
... cache_store("redis:group1","key","$ru value"); cache_fetch("redis:cluster1","key",$avp(10)); cache_remove("redis:cluster1","key"); ...
