a redis client connection pool


A node.js connection pool for Redis.

node-redis-connection-pool is a high-level redis management object. It manages a number of connections in a pool, using them as needed and keeping all aspects of releasing active connections internal to the object, so the user does not need to worry about forgotten connections leaking resources.
