Cannot connect to YEDIS API
AttentionThis page documents an earlier version. Go to the latest version.
1. Are YugabyteDB processes running?
First, ensure that the expected YugabyteDB processes on the current node. At a minimum, the tserver process needs to be running to be able to connect to this node with a Redis client or application. Additionally, depending on the setup, you might expect a master process to also be running on this node. Follow the instructions on the Check Processes page.
2. Is the Redis-compatible YEDIS API running?
If the tserver process is running, make sure the the YEDIS API is enabled and listening on the Redis port (default
$ lsof -i :6379
COMMAND PID USER FD TYPE DEVICE SIZE/OFF NODE NAME yb-tserve 81590 centos 92u IPv4 0xdeadbeef 0t0 TCP localhost:6379 (LISTEN)
Note: You may need to install
When running a local cluster with
yb-ctl you should see all the nodes here with different IPs. For instance:
$ lsof -i :6379
COMMAND PID USER FD TYPE DEVICE SIZE/OFF NODE NAME yb-tserve 81590 centos 92u IPv4 0xdeadbeef 0t0 TCP localhost:6379 (LISTEN) yb-tserve 81593 centos 92u IPv4 0xdeadbeef 0t0 TCP 127.0.0.2:6379 (LISTEN) yb-tserve 81596 centos 92u IPv4 0xdeadbeef 0t0 TCP 127.0.0.3:6379 (LISTEN)
If there is another process using this port you might need to stop that and restart the tserver process.
Otherwise, if no process is listening but the tserver is running, check the value of the
--redis_proxy_bind_address flag passed to the
3. Can redis-cli connect locally?
redis-cli to connect to the local node.
You may need to install
redis-cli, otherwise you can find it in the Yugabyte bin directory).
$ ./redis-cli -h <yb-local-address>
<yb-local-address> is the address where the YEDIS service is listening (e.g. as returned by
lsof). For instance, in the example above, it is
localhost (or, additionally,
127.0.0.3 for the
redis-cli can connect, the issue is likely a network issue with the original client not being able to access this node where YugabyteDB is running. See also Cannot access Master or TServer Endpoints below.
Otherwise, you might need to run
./yb-admin --master_addresses <master-ip-addresses> setup_redis_table". You can find the
yb-admin tool in the Yugabyte
