High-Availability store

Efficient data fetching

ha-store Node Dependencies Status

HA-store is a wrapper for your data queries, it features:

  • Smart TLRU cache for 'hot' information
  • Supports mutliple caching levels
  • Request coalescing and batching (solves the Thundering Herd problem)
  • Insightful stats and events
  • Lightweight, configurable, battle-tested

Learn how you can improve your app's performance, design and resiliancy here!


npm install ha-store


// Create your store
const store = require('ha-store');
const itemStore = store({
  resolver: getItems,
  delimiter: ['language']

// Define your resolver
function getItems(ids, params, contexts) {
  // Ids will be a list of all the unique requested items
  // Params will be the parameters for the request, which must be declared in the `delimiter` config of the store
  // Contexts will be the list of originating context information

  // Now perform some exensive network call or database lookup...

  // Then, respond with your data formatted into this formats:
  // { '123': { language: 'fr', name: 'fred' } }

// Now to use your store
itemStore.get('123', { language: 'fr' }, { requestId: '123' })
  .then(item => /* The item you requested */);

// You can even ask for more than one item at a time
itemStore.getMany(['123', '456'], { language: 'en' }, { requestId: '123' })
  .then(items => /* All the items you requested, in Promise.allSettled fashion */);


Name Required Default Description
resolver true - The method to wrap, and how to interpret the returned data. Uses the format <function(ids, params)>
delimiter false [] The list of parameters that, when passed, generate unique results. Ex: 'language', 'view', 'fields', 'country'. These will generate different combinations of cache keys.
cache false
  enabled: false,
  tiers: [
    store: <instance of a store>,
    limit: 5000,
    ttl: 300000
A list of storage tiers for the data. The order indicates where to look first. It's recommended to keep an instance of an in-memory store, like ha-store/stores/in-memory as the first one, and then expend to external stores like ha-store-redis. Caching options for the data - limit - the maximum number of records, and ttl - time to live for a record in milliseconds.
batch false
  enabled: false,
  delay: 50,
  limit: 100
Batching options for the requests - delay is the amount of time to wait before sending the batch, limit is the maximum number of data items to send in a batch.

*All options are in (ms)

Monitoring and events

HA-store emits events to track cache hits, miss and outbound requests.

Event Format Description
localCacheHit <number> When the requested item is present in the first listed local store (usually in-memory).
cacheHit <number> When the requested item is present in a store.
cacheMiss <number> When the requested item not cached or coalesced and must be fetched.
coalescedHit <number> When a record query successfully hooks to the promise of the same record in transit.
query <object> When a batch of requests is about to be sent, gives the detail of the query and what triggered it.
queryFailed <object> Indicates that the batch has failed. Retry policy will dictate if it should be re-attempted.
querySuccess <object> Indicates that the batch request was successful.

You may also want to track the amount of contexts and records stored via the size method.
