Connecting to Tendis Instances

Last updated: 2021-03-02 18:32:16

    You can connect to a TencentDB for Tendis instance using a private network address, the data management console (DMC), and programing languages.

    Connecting Using a Private Network Address

    A CVM instance can be used to access the private network address that is automatically assigned to a TencentDB instance. This connection method relies on the high-speed private network of Tencent Cloud and features low delay. Both instances should be under the same account and reside in the same VPC in the same region or reside in the classic network.

    Note:

    • CVM and TencentDB instances in different VPCs (under the same or different accounts in the same or different regions) can be interconnected over private network through Cloud Connect Network.
    • To connect to Tendis instances with a public network address, please see iptables Forwarding.

    Step 1. Prepare the environment

    1. Log in to a Linux CVM instance. For more information, please see Customizing Linux CVM Configurations.
    2. Taking a CVM instance on CentOS as an example. Install the Redis client by running the following command:
      yum install redis -y
      If Complete! is displayed, the client is installed successfully.

    Step 2. Connect to the Tendis instance

    The following connection command supported by open-source Redis can be used to connect to the Tendis instance:

    redis-cli -h IP address -p port -a password

    For example, if the password you set is abcd1234, then the connection command should be as follows:

    redis-cli -h IP address -p port -a abcd1234

    Connecting Using DMC

    You can use Tencent Cloud’s data management console (DMC) to access TencentDB for Tendis instances, manipulate databases and tables, manage instance sessions, monitor instances in real time, view InnoDB lock waits, and use the SQL window.

    Connecting Using Programing Languages
