Trigger Specification

This specification describes the redis trigger that scales based on the length of a list in Redis.

triggers:
- type: redis
  metadata:
    address: REDIS_HOST # Required host:port format
    password: REDIS_PASSWORD
    listName: mylist # Required
    listLength: "5" # Required
    enableTLS: "false" # optional
    databaseIndex: "0" # optional

The address field in the spec holds the host and port of the redis server. This could be an external redis server or one running in the kubernetes cluster.

As an alternative to the address field the user can specify host and port parameters.

Provide the password field if the redis server requires a password. Both the hostname and password fields need to be set to the names of the environment variables in the target deployment that contain the host name and password respectively.

The listName parameter in the spec points to the Redis List that you want to monitor. The listLength parameter defines the average target value for the Horizontal Pod Autoscaler (HPA).

The enableTLS parameter if set to true allow a connection to a redis queue using tls, the default value for this parameter is false.

The databaseIndex parameter let the user select the redis database to use. If not specified, the default value is 0

Authentication Parameters

You can authenticate by using a password.

Password Authentication:

  • password - Redis password to authenticate with

Example

Here is an example of how to deploy a scaled object with the redis scale trigger which uses TriggerAuthentication.

You can also provide the password on the ScaledObject directly.

kind: Secret
metadata:
  name: votes-db-secret
  namespace: my-project
type: Opaque

  redis_password: YWRtaW4=
