Redis is either down or ws not configured


I am trying to setup tyk-ce via the helm charts on kubernetes.
When enabling the ingress gateway, the backends remain in state: unhealthy.
If I look at the logs I see:

level=warning msg=“Reconnecting storage: Redis is either down or ws not configured”

  • I have checked if redis is accessible from the pod (via google redis memorystore). I am also using this redis for other pods, so I am sure it is accessible.
  • I have installed a separate redis pod like described on the helm chart docs

But both give me this warning.
Any ideas on what I might have been doing wrong ?

Hi Youri

This message is ok if seen once or twice - the redis healthcheck from the gateway takes a few seconds to turn green.

You can test by getting a list of keys using the gateway API for example.
