Run-time configuration

RedisBloom supports a few run-time configuration options that should be determined when loading the module.

Passing Configuration Options During Loading

In general, passing configuration options is done by appending arguments after the --loadmodule argument in the command line, loadmodule configuration directive in a Redis config file, or the MODULE LOAD command. For example:

In redis.conf:

loadmodule redisbloom.so OPT1 OPT2

From redis-cli:

127.0.0.6379> MODULE load redisbloom.so OPT1 OPT2

From command line:

$ redis-server --loadmodule ./redisbloom.so OPT1 OPT2

Default parameters

Note on using initialization default sizes

A filter should always be sized for the expected capacity and the desired error-rate. Using the INSERT family commands with the default values should be used in cases where many small filter exist and the expectation is most will remain at about that size. Not optimizing a filter for its intended use will result in degradation of performance and memory efficiency.

Error rate and Initial Size for Bloom Filter

You can adjust the default error ratio and the initial filter size (for bloom filters) using the ERROR_RATE and INITIAL_SIZE options respectively when loading the module, e.g.

$ redis-server --loadmodule /path/to/redisbloom.so INITIAL_SIZE 400 ERROR_RATE 0.004

The default error rate is 0.01 and the default initial capacity is 100 .

Initial Size for Cuckoo Filter

For Cuckoo filter, the default capacity is 1024.
