Bloom: Checking if an item exists in the filter> BF.EXISTS newFilter foo
(integer) 1> BF.EXISTS newFilter notpresent
(integer) 0

Bloom: Adding and checking multiple items> BF.MADD myFilter foo bar baz
1) (integer) 1
2) (integer) 1
3) (integer) 1> BF.MEXISTS myFilter foo nonexist bar

Cuckoo Filters

Cuckoo: Adding new items to a filter

Create an empty cuckoo filter with an initial capacity (of 1000 items)> CF.RESERVE newCuckooFilter 1000
(integer) 1

A new filter is created for you if it does not yet exist> CF.ADD newCuckooFilter foo
(integer) 1

You can add the item multiple times. The filter will attempt to count it.

Cuckoo: Checking whether item exists> CF.EXISTS newCuckooFilter foo
(integer) 1> CF.EXISTS newCuckooFilter notpresent
(integer) 0

Cuckoo: Deleting item from filter> CF.DEL newCuckooFilter foo
(integer) 1
