OpenResty Scalable Web Platform by Extending NGINX with Lua

Redis2 Nginx Module

Yichun Zhang , 17 Oct 2013 (created 21 Jun 2011)

This is an Nginx upstream module that makes nginx talk to a redis 2.x server in a non-blocking way. The full Redis 2.0 unified protocol has been implemented including the redis pipelining support.

This module returns the raw TCP response from the Redis server.

This module is enabled by default and can be disabled by passing the --without-http_redis2_module option to the ./configure script for OpenResty.

When used in conjunction with LuaNginxModule, it is recommended to use LuaRestyRedisLibrary module instead of this one, since it is more flexible and more memory-efficient.
