I didn't see any posts on using Redis Sentinal, but I'd like to learn how to do database fail-over. Mainly because the primary machine my forum runs on is quite old and I have a few other machines on the LAN that could store the Redis slaves.
As far as the setup, is there anything I shouldn't do in their minimal config?
sentinel monitor mymaster 127.0.0.1 6379 2
sentinel down-after-milliseconds mymaster 60000
sentinel failover-timeout mymaster 180000
sentinel parallel-syncs mymaster 1
sentinel monitor resque 192.168.1.3 6380 4
sentinel down-after-milliseconds resque 10000
sentinel failover-timeout resque 180000
sentinel parallel-syncs resque 5
After setting up my existing Redis database as the master, it seems like all I need to do is set the
slaveof parameter on my second machine using the Master IP address and Master PW.
