salt.returners.redis_return

Return data to a redis server

To enable this returner the minion will need the python client for redis installed and the following values configured in the minion or master config, these are the defaults:

redis.db: '0'
redis.host: 'salt'
redis.port: 6379

Cluster Mode Example:

Alternative configuration values can be used by prefacing the configuration. Any values not found in the alternative configuration will be pulled from the default location:

alternative.redis.db: '0'
alternative.redis.host: 'salt'
alternative.redis.port: 6379

To use the redis returner, append '--return redis' to the salt command.

salt '*' test.ping --return redis

To use the alternative configuration, append '--return_config alternative' to the salt command.

New in version 2015.5.0.

salt '*' test.ping --return redis --return_config alternative

To override individual configuration items, append --return_kwargs '{"key:": "value"}' to the salt command.

New in version 2016.3.0.

salt '*' test.ping --return redis --return_kwargs '{"db": "another-salt"}'

Redis Cluster Mode Options:

cluster_mode: False
Whether cluster_mode is enabled or not
cluster.startup_nodes:
A list of host, port dictionaries pointing to cluster members. At least one is required but multiple nodes are better
cluster.skip_full_coverage_check: False

Some cluster providers restrict certain redis commands such as CONFIG for enhanced security. Set this option to true to skip checks that required advanced privileges.

Note

Most cloud hosted redis clusters will require this to be set to True

salt.returners.redis_return.clean_old_jobs()

Clean out minions's return data for old jobs.

Normally, hset 'ret:<jid>' are saved with a TTL, and will eventually get cleaned by redis.But for jobs with some very late minion return, the corresponding hset's TTL will be refreshed to a too late timestamp, we'll do manually cleaning here.

salt.returners.redis_return.get_fun(fun)

Return a dict of the last function called for all minions

salt.returners.redis_return.get_jid(jid)

Return the information returned when the specified job id was executed

salt.returners.redis_return.get_jids()

Return a dict mapping all job ids to job information

salt.returners.redis_return.get_load(jid)

Return the load data that marks a specified jid

salt.returners.redis_return.get_minions()

Return a list of minions

salt.returners.redis_return.prep_jid(nocache=False, passed_jid=None)

Do any work necessary to prepare a JID, including sending a custom id

salt.returners.redis_return.returner(ret)

Return data to a redis data store

salt.returners.redis_return.save_load(jid, load, minions=None)

Save the load to the specified jid
