This Python script is practical for generating random passwords.

A password contains:
7 lowercase alphabetic characters.

3 Node (Master Slave Slave) Redis Cluster with Sentinel

It is possible to make your Redis cluster Fault Tolerant and Highly Available by building a replica set and then monitor these nodes using sentinel for automatic failover.
I am going to give an example setup to explain it. The structure is built with three nodes running one as a master and two as slaves.
Master Node: (Centos 7.2) Slave1 Node: (Centos 7.2) Slave2 Node: (Centos 7.2)
Edit System settings on each node: /etc/sysctl.conf
Disable transparent hugepage (transparent_hugepage=never) on each node: /etc/default/grub
Apply grub config and reboot each node:
Master Node: /etc/redis/6379.conf
Slave1 Node: /etc/redis/6379.conf
Slave2 Node: /etc/redis/6379.conf
Master Node: /etc/redis/sentinel.conf
Slave1 Node: /etc/redis/sentinel.conf
Slave2 Node: /etc/redis/sentinel.conf
Each Node: /etc/systemd/system/
Each Node: /etc/systemd/system/
