Reddie interface

Reddie is split into two main areas: Clusters and Nodes. In the Clusters area you can view and manage Redis Clusters, and in the Nodes area individual Redis instances.

When Reddie connects to a Redis instance, it discovers any additional cluster members and other information populating both of these areas.

From the top header, you can navigate to the Clusters or Nodes areas at any time. The ability to search and add connections is also present.

Search for a known cluster or node.

Connect to a new node or cluster.

Start typing in the search box to begin a search. Reddie looks for the entered text in node IDs, addresses and cluster names.

Adding connections

To add a Redis node to Reddie, enter the address for a valid Redis server.

Use Service Discovery or CONNECT (see Running Reddie) to automatically add nodes to Reddie.

Enter one or more addresses using any delimiter you want (spaces, new lines, commas, semi-colons). Reddie will check the connection, discover additional cluster members and check if a password is required to connect.


When a cluster is selected, a contextual header is added showing the currently selected cluster.

Change the name of the cluster

For convenience, Reddie can assign a name to a cluster. This sets the key reddie:cluster:name on the cluster to store the name which will persist indefinitely.


When a node is selected, a contextual header is added showing the currently selected node.

Execute node specific commands

The node menu can be used to:

  • Initiate failover
  • Flush keys
  • Reset the node
  • Reset statistics
  • Send DEBUG SEGFAULT for testing purposes


Identicons are images used to visually represent an identifier. Reddie uses identicons to help you visually identify a Redis node based on its 40-character ID.

In most cases, identicons can also be hovered over for additional information or clicked to navigate to the node. In case a list of identicons is too long, Reddie will abbreviate it. Click the more placeholder to expand the list.

Redis Authentication

Redis can be configured to require a password when connecting. When Reddie encounters a server that it doesn’t have a password for, it will prompt you to enter it.

Reddie will use the entered password to authenticate with the server and also any peers that the password is applicable to.

If authentication was successful and Reddie is configured to save Redis passwords, Reddie will also remember the password for future connections.

Reddie does not support having differing passwords among different members of the same cluster.
