2.2 quality score

We run a couple of automated
scans to help you access a
module's quality. Each module is
given a score based on how well
the author has formatted their
code and documentation and
modules are also checked for
malware using VirusTotal.

Please note, the information below
is for guidance only and neither of
these methods should be considered
an endorsement by Puppet.

KyleAnderson/redis_sentinel — version 0.0.8 Dec 20th 2013

#redis_sentinel Build Status


Only currently works on 2.6. Uses the Old behavior. The newer sentinel in 2.8 writes its own config file, which I not yet know how to handle.


This puppet module configures the Redis Sentinel to do automatic master/slave control on a bunch of redis servers. (not to be confused with Redis Cluster.)


###What this module affects

  • /etc/redis-sentinel.conf
  • A redis-sentinel service
  • It does not depend or interact with any other redis module

##Usage Examples

A simple usage of a single monitor:

include redis_sentinel
redis_sentinel::monitor { 'mymaster':
  host                    => '',
  port                    => '6379',
  quorum                  => '2',
  down_after_milliseconds => '60000',
  failover_timeout        => '900000',
  can_failover            => 'yes',
  parallel_syncs          => '1',

A complex example with an array of redis servers using quorum:

include redis_sentinel
$redis_servers = [ 'redis1', 'redis2', 'redis3' ]
redis_sentinel::monitor { $redis_servers:
  quorum                  => size($redis_servers) / 2 + 1,
  down_after_milliseconds => '60000',
  failover_timeout        => '900000',
  can_failover            => 'yes',
  parallel_syncs          => size($redis_servers),


  • Only Supports Redis 2.6.x
  • Requires Redis to be installed via another module.
  • Not production tested!
  • Probably makes assumptions I'm not thinking about (open an issue!)
  • Only tested on ubuntu
