django-redis-sessions 0.6.1

Redis Session Backend For Django

django-redis-sessions

Redis database backend for your sessions

Installation

  • Run pip install django-redis-sessions or alternatively download the tarball and run python setup.py install,

For Django < 1.4 run pip install django-redis-sessions==0.3

  • Set redis_sessions.session as your session engine, like so:
SESSION_ENGINE = 'redis_sessions.session'

Available Settings

SESSION_REDIS = {
    'host': 'localhost',
    'port': 6379,
    'db': 0,
    'password': 'password',
    'prefix': 'session',
    'socket_timeout': 1
}

If you prefer domain socket connection, you can just add this line instead of HOST and PORT.

SESSION_REDIS = {
    'unix_domain_socket_path': '/var/run/redis/redis.sock',
    'db': 0,
    'password': 'password',
    'prefix': 'session',
    'socket_timeout': 1
}

Redis Sentinel

SESSION_REDIS_SENTINEL_LIST = [(host, port), (host, port), (host, port)]
SESSION_REDIS_SENTINEL_MASTER_ALIAS = 'sentinel-master'

Redis Pool (Horizontal partitioning)

Splits sessions between Redis instances based on the session key. You can configure the connection type for each Redis instance in the pool (host/port, unix socket, redis url).

SESSION_REDIS = {
    'prefix': 'session',
    'socket_timeout': 1
    'retry_on_timeout': False,
    'pool': [{
        'host': 'localhost3',
        'port': 6379,
        'db': 0,
        'password': None,
        'unix_domain_socket_path': None,
        'url': None,
        'weight': 1
    },
    {
        'host': 'localhost2',
        'port': 6379,
        'db': 0,
        'password': None,
        'unix_domain_socket_path': None,
        'url': None,
        'weight': 1
    },
    {
        'host': 'localhost1',
        'port': 6379,
        'db': 0,
        'password': None,
        'unix_domain_socket_path': None,
        'url': None,
        'weight': 1
    }]
}
