Estimate maximum number of connection#

The number of simultaneous connections in Aiven for Redis®* depends on the total available memory on the server.

You can use the following to estimate:

\[{max\_number\_of\_connections} = 4\times m\]

where m represents the memory in megabytes. With at least 10,000 connections available, even on the smallest servers. For example, on a server with 4GB memory (4,096 MB), the simultaneous connections are:

\[4\times 4096 = 16384 {\ connections}\]


Make sure to convert the memory figure m to megabytes.

This number is estimated by the exact available memory so it varies between different plans and cloud providers, to see the exact maximum connections allowed, use * redis-cli and info command as the following:

echo "info" | redis-cli -u REDIS_URI | grep maxclients
