As part of my work to package up the fantastic Sensu monitoring framework for Solaris 11, I have just uploaded a complete package of Redis 2.8.9 to my IPS package repositories (x86 only at the moment – see the docs linked below). This also includes a SMF manifest, so a
pkg install redis should provide with all you need to get going straight away:
$ pkg install redis Packages to install: 1 Create boot environment: No Create backup boot environment: No Services to change: 1 DOWNLOAD PKGS FILES XFER (MB) SPEED Completed 1/1 9/9 0.9/0.9 880k/s PHASE ITEMS Installing new actions 22/22 Updating package state database Done Updating image state Done Creating fast lookup database Done $ /opt/mar/bin/redis-cli 127.0.0.1:6379> ping PONG 127.0.0.1:6379>
It’s currently available in both the /dev and /stable branches – for more information and a quick overview on how to use my repositories, see the documentation and user guide. I aim to get the rest of the components such as RabbitMQ and so on sorted over the next few weeks, so very soon you should hopefully be able to do a simple
pkg install sensu-server or
pkg install sensu-client on Solaris 11 x86.
