Prevent setting TTL for connect-redis session to allow allkeys-lru for memory policy
I have set up a pretty simple RedisStore using connect-redis and redis packages. I have a dedicated box for my Session store and want to use the allkeys-lru maxmemory policy for eviction rather than a TTL.
It doesn't seem that connect-redis' store allows for setting no TTL (i tried using -1 in the options object when creating the store, looks like that sets a TTL of 0). Any suggestions on how to do this?
Also, does anyone see why this might be a bad practice?
Looking at the relevant source code, it seems like connect-redis won't let you use it without expiring the key. It seems to me that you have two options:
- Write your own session store, inheriting from connect-redis' RedisStore but overriding
- Specify a huge
maxAge, in order to have keys expiring far in the future.
I don't see an issue with not expiring keys and using lru instead.
