How to connect to AWS Redis cluster

We can use redis-cli utility to connect to a Redis cluster.

First of all we need to install this tool in local system. Make sure that gcc is already installed as we are using source compilation.

#wget http://download.redis.io/redis-stable.tar.gz
#tar xvzf redis-stable.tar.gz
#cd redis-stable
#make distclean      // ubuntu systems only
#make

Now the tool is ready for use and the command scripts are available in the src folder inside current working directory.

#src/redis-cli -c -h host -p port

Here we need to replace host and port with the appropriate values for the cluster that need to connect.

The default port number will be 6379.

That's all..
