19.2. Using the Redis Data Store Programmatically

19.2.1. Creating a Data Store

An instance of a Redis data store can be obtained through the normal GeoTools discovery methods, assuming that the GeoMesa code is on the classpath.

Map<String, Serializable> parameters = new HashMap<>();
parameters.put("redis.url", "redis://localhost:6379");
parameters.put("redis.catalog", "geomesa");
org.geotools.data.DataStore dataStore =

19.2.2. Redis Data Store Parameters

The data store takes several parameters (required parameters are marked with *):

Parameter Type Description
redis.url * String Redis connection URL. The URL can be used to specify the Redis database and credentials, if required - for example, ‘redis://user:pass@host:port/db’
redis.catalog * String The name of the GeoMesa catalog table. In Redis, this is the base key used for inserts
redis.connection.pool.size Integer Max number of simultaneous connections to use
redis.connection.pool.validate Boolean Test connections when borrowed from the pool. Connections may be closed due to inactivity, which would cause a transient error if validation is disabled
redis.pipeline.enabled Boolean Enable pipelining of query requests. This reduces network latency, but restricts queries to a single execution thread
geomesa.query.threads Integer The number of threads to use per query (if not pipelining)
geomesa.query.timeout String The max time a query will be allowed to run before being killed. The timeout is specified as a duration, e.g. 1 minute or 60 seconds
geomesa.stats.generate Boolean Toggle collection of statistics for newly created feature types
geomesa.query.audit Boolean Audit queries being run. Queries will be written to a log file
geomesa.query.loose-bounding-box Boolean Use loose bounding boxes - queries will be faster but may return extraneous results
geomesa.query.caching Boolean Toggle caching of results
geomesa.security.auths String Comma-delimited superset of authorizations that will be used for queries
geomesa.security.force-empty-auths Boolean Forces authorizations to be empty
