Managed Redis select DB, any limits?

For most Redis client tutorials I’m seeing, you need to select a DB within the Redis instance/cluster (defaults to 0). I’m wondering:

  1. Do I need to create these with a client (seems to be no options to manage this through the UI).

  2. Is there a limit to the number of DBs for a DO managed Redis cluster? Default on a regular install is 16, but that can be raised. How’s that work here?

Hi @CarterB

By default, we provide 16 databases in Redis which you can switch to by using SELECT statement. Increasing the number of databases is not supported .

Redis databases are numbered from 0 to 15 and, by default, you connect to database 0 when you connect to your Redis instance. However, you can change the database you’re using with the select command after you connect:

select 15

Hope this helps!
