For App Developers
Redis is configured with a maxmemory-policy of no-eviction. This policy means that the once memory is full, the service will not evict any keys and no write operations will be possible until memory becomes available. Persistence is configured for both RDB and AOF. The default maximum number of connections, maxclients, is set at 10000 but this number is adjusted by Redis according to the number of file handles available. Replication and event notification are not configured.
PCF Redis offers Dedicated VM and Shared VM plans. The memory allocated to the plans is determined by the operator at deploy time. For more information on the plans see the architecture and recommended usage pages.
Instructions for creating, binding to, and deleting an instance of the dedicated-VM or shared-VM plan are here.
PCF Dev is a small footprint version of PCF that’s small enough to run on a local developer machine. More info here https://pivotal.io/pcf-dev.
Sample ruby code that uses PCF can be found here https://github.com/pivotal-cf/cf-redis-example-app.
