Salvatore Sanfilippo about a new feature coming with Redis 2.8 simplifying Redis configuration management:
I believe that now that
CONFIG REWRITE somewhat completes the triad of the
configuration API, users will greatly benefit from that, both in the case of
small users that will do configuration changes from redis-cli in a very
reliable way, without a restart, without the possibility of configuration
errors in redis.conf, and for big users of course where scripting a large
farm of Redis instances can be very useful.
✚ Salvatore says that this new feature completes the configuration API. One future extra feature could be replicating some master configuration options to its slave automatically.
