Google Memorystore for Redis

Google Cloud Memorystore for Redis is a fully-managed service that is powered by the Redis in-memory data store to build application caches that provide sub-millisecond data access. Extend your database application to build AI-powered experiences leveraging Memorystore for Redis's Langchain integrations.

This notebook goes over how to use Google Cloud Memorystore for Redis to store chat message history with the MemorystoreChatMessageHistory class.

Learn more about the package on GitHub.

Open In Colab

Before You Begin​

To run this notebook, you will need to do the following:

After confirmed access to database in the runtime environment of this notebook, filling the following values and run the cell before running example scripts.

# @markdown Please specify an endpoint associated with the instance or demo purpose.
ENDPOINT = "redis://" # @param {type:"string"}

πŸ¦œπŸ”— Library Installation​

The integration lives in its own langchain-google-memorystore-redis package, so we need to install it.

%pip install -upgrade --quiet langchain-google-memorystore-redis

Colab only: Uncomment the following cell to restart the kernel or use the button to restart the kernel. For Vertex AI Workbench you can restart the terminal using the button on top.

# # Automatically restart kernel after installs so that your environment can access the new packages
# import IPython

# app = IPython.Application.instance()
# app.kernel.do_shutdown(True)

☁ Set Your Google Cloud Project​

Set your Google Cloud project so that you can leverage Google Cloud resources within this notebook.

If you don't know your project ID, try the following:

# @markdown Please fill in the value below with your Google Cloud project ID and then run the cell.

PROJECT_ID = "my-project-id" # @param {type:"string"}

# Set the project id
!gcloud config set project {PROJECT_ID}

πŸ” Authentication​

Authenticate to Google Cloud as the IAM user logged into this notebook in order to access your Google Cloud Project.

  • If you are using Colab to run this notebook, use the cell below and continue.
  • If you are using Vertex AI Workbench, check out the setup instructions here.
from google.colab import auth


Basic Usage​


To initialize the MemorystoreMessageHistory class you need to provide only 2 things:

  1. redis_client - An instance of a Memorystore Redis.
  2. session_id - Each chat message history object must have a unique session ID. If the session ID already has messages stored in Redis, they will can be retrieved.
import redis
from langchain_google_memorystore_redis import MemorystoreChatMessageHistory

# Connect to a Memorystore for Redis instance
redis_client = redis.from_url("redis://")

message_history = MemorystoreChatMessageHistory(redis_client, session_id="session1")

Cleaning up​

When the history of a specific session is obsolete and can be deleted, it can be done the following way.

Note: Once deleted, the data is no longer stored in Memorystore for Redis and is gone forever.
