Cache

Azure Cache is a family of cache offerings that support high throughput, low-latency data access, to enable building fast, scalable applications.
- Azure Redis Cache (Preview) is based on the popular open source Redis Cache engine. The service gives users access to a secure, dedicated Redis Cache, managed by Microsoft.
- Azure Managed Cache Service: Built on App Fabric Cache. This is a dedicated managed service.
- In-Role Cache: Built on App Fabric Cache. This is a self-hosted cache, available via the Azure SDK.

  1. Have better status report in portal

    It is extremely frustrating when the redis server keeps refuse connection and there is no indication of why it is so in the portal. Since the server seems to be sending ECONNRESET to all command, I can't use redis-cli to check or recover.

    Also once the redis cache reachs max connection, there is no way to manage either from redis-cli or portal

    • Document how exactly azure redis failover works

      It's hard to find out how azure redis failover works. Is it working exactly in same way as AWS one (dns switching) or you have done something different? I wonder if there should be some changes needed in redis client configuration.

      • Support caching in azure pipelines

        I like caching npm/yarn dependencies in Travis and would like the same in Azure pipelines.

        • Allow changing client-output-buffer

          Allow configuring client-output-buffer. This is very important especially when running on multiple clouds to achieve same redis settings across all clouds.

          • Add more detailed analytics about gets and sets to diagnose problems and monitor cache

            Currently there's no easy way when we see a spike in gets or sets to see what's happening. We have to start guessing, and neither the monitoring dashlets nor the Application Insights external dependency track are useful. It'd be great to have some form of get/set tracking to diagnose problemas.

              • Request Count per Client on Azure Redis Cache Instance

                Right now , There is no way to request count from client. in our case We have around 22 cloud service and each one is using Azure Redis Cache and we see spike on azure portal for cache but not able to identify cloud service name which one is requesting so may request to cache. if we get the name then it will help to narrow down code analysis . I mean which cloud service is creation spike.

                • azure redis cache pricing page

                  The information in this page (https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/pricing/details/cache/) seems to be wrong - headers for 2nd and 3rd columns seem swapped as they list that Standard is the top performance tier, whereas Premium is in-between Basic and Standard.
                  Also, you should consider a more effective way to report this type of bugs, directly in the page, rather than going to a general feedback forum which may not be the proper place...

                    • Support generating CORS key, at least for Read-Only access

                      I like other Azure Storage has the CORS key generation concept.
                      I would like to generate Read-Only key access for my cache, so that our partner can directly read them.

                      • Increase number of databases

                        Is there a way to increase the number of databases? Based on the tier, I am limited to fixed number of databases, but is there a negative impact if I wanted to increase beyond this number? Since the memory of the cache applies across all databases, why is there these limits?

                            Connecting from java client to Azure Redis SSL port requires us to import the Redis certificate to java kestore. This is not documented in the Redis SSL java client. Is it posssible to add the certificate to JDK itself ?

                              Every time I clicked on my redis, it took so long to load the monitoring dashboards. And after waiting for a long time, I tried to click on one of the monitoring dashboard, say, "Connections", the webpage did not respond...
                              I do not if this is a good place to give feedback on, since this might be poor frontend design...... I just want to call out this pain

                              • More control on Redis Server updates

                                According to https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/documentation/articles/cache-faq/, Redis server updates could cause the session disconnect.
                                ---
                                Server-side causes
                                Azure was patching the instance where the cache was deployed
                                This can be for Redis server updates or general VM maintenance.
                                --

                                I would like to avoid session disconnect during business hours.
                                So I want to control when the Redis server updates. Or at least I want to know when the Redis server updates.

                                ----
                                Japanese:

                                https://azure.microsoft.com/ja-jp/documentation/articles/cache-faq/ によると、Redis Server のアップデートによりセッションが切断されることがあり得ます。
                                ---
                                サーバー側の原因
                                - Azure により、キャッシュがデプロイされているインスタンスに修正プログラムが適用されていた。
                                - Redis サーバーの更新または VM の一般的なメンテナンスの場合もこれに該当します。
                                ---

                                避けることが可能なセッションの切断は避けたいです。
                                そのため、Redis Server がいつアップデートされるかを、ユーザー側で制御したいです。
                                もしくは、少なくとも、Redis Server がいつアップデートされるかを知りたいです。

                                • Provide Redis node event logs

                                  Currently if a Redis node swaps due to patching or failing there is no way to figure this out in the Azure portal. The only way to find out is to log a service ticket. Which isnt great for the customer and worse for MS.

                                  Please provide an event log in the portal that customers can use to see what node failures or swaps happen in the cluster.
