Replicate Multiple Redis Accounts

Replicate multiple Redis accounts to one or many databases.

CData Sync for Redis is a stand-alone application that provides solutions for a variety of replication scenarios such as replicating sandbox and production instances into your database. Both Sync for Windows and Sync for Java include a command-line interface (CLI) that makes it easy to manage multiple Redis connections. In this article we show how to use the CLI to replicate multiple Redis accounts.

Configure Redis Connections

You can save connection and email notification settings in an XML configuration file. To replicate multiple Redis accounts, use multiple configuration files. Below is an example configuration to replicate Redis to SQLite:

Windows

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?> <CDataSync> <DatabaseType>SQLite</DatabaseType> <DatabaseProvider>System.Data.SQLite</DatabaseProvider> <ConnectionString>Server=127.0.0.1;Port=6379;Password=myPassword;</ConnectionString> <ReplicateAll>False</ReplicateAll> <NotificationUserName></NotificationUserName> <DatabaseConnectionString>Data Source=C:\my.db</DatabaseConnectionString> <TaskSchedulerStartTime>09:51</TaskSchedulerStartTime> <TaskSchedulerInterval>Never</TaskSchedulerInterval> </CDataSync>

Java

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?> <CDataSync> <DatabaseType>SQLite</DatabaseType> <DatabaseProvider>org.sqlite.JDBC</DatabaseProvider> <ConnectionString>Server=127.0.0.1;Port=6379;Password=myPassword;</ConnectionString> <ReplicateAll>False</ReplicateAll> <NotificationUserName></NotificationUserName> <DatabaseConnectionString>Data Source=C:\my.db</DatabaseConnectionString> </CDataSync>

Set the following connection properties to connect to a Redis instance:

  • Server: Set this to the name or address of the server your Redis instance is running on. You can specify the port in Port.
  • Password: Set this to the password used to authenticate with a password-protected Redis instance , using the Redis AUTH command.

Set UseSSL to negotiate SSL/TLS encryption when you connect.

Configure Queries for Each Redis Instance

Sync enables you to control replication with standard SQL. The REPLICATE statement is a high-level command that caches and maintains a table in your database. You can define any SELECT query supported by the Redis API. The statement below caches and incrementally updates a table of Redis data:

REPLICATE Customers;

You can specify a file containing the replication queries you want to use to update a particular database. Separate replication statements with semicolons. The following options are useful if you are replicating multiple Redis accounts into the same database:

You can use a different table prefix in the REPLICATE SELECT statement:

REPLICATE PROD_Customers SELECT * FROM Customers

Alternatively, you can use a different schema:

REPLICATE PROD.Customers SELECT * FROM Customers

Run Sync

After you have configured the connection strings and replication queries, you can run Sync with the following command-line options:

Windows

RedisSync.exe -g MyProductionRedisConfig.xml -f MyProductionRedisSync.sql

Java

java -Xbootclasspath/p:c:\sqlitejdbc.jar -jar RedisSync.jar -g MyProductionRedisConfig.xml -f MyProductionRedisSync.sql
