Overwrite part of a string at key starting at the specified offset

Overwrites part of the value(string) stored at key, starting at the specified offset, for the entire length(bytes) of value.   If the offset is larger than the current length of the value at key, the value is padded with zero-bytes to make offset fit.   Non-existing keys are considered as empty string, so this command will make sure it holds a string large enough to be able to set value at offset.   Offset can start from 0.
Usage is setrange key offset value.

Return value

Integer reply: the length(bytes) of the string after it was modified by the command.


command>set key "This is MySQL Server"
command>setrange key 8 Redis
command>get key
result>This is Redis Server


Zero-bytes padding


command>setrange key 3 Redis
command>get key

Negative offset


command>setrange key -3 Redis
result>(error) ERR offset is out of range
Offset can not be negative.

(error) ERR string exceeds maximum allowed size (512MB)


SETRANGE key offset value

  • Available since 2.2.0.
  • Time complexity(Logical processing time): O(1), not counting the time taken to copy the new string in place.   Usually, this string is very small so the amortized complexity is O(1).   Otherwise, complexity is O(M) with M being the length of the value argument.
  • This document is based on Redis server version 3.2.2.
