Probabilistic Data Structures API

Details on module's commands can be filtered for a specific PDS.

The details also include the syntax for the commands, where:

  • Command and subcommand names are in uppercase, for example BF.RESERVE or BF.ADD
  • Optional arguments are enclosed in square brackets, for example [NONSCALING]
  • Additional optional arguments, such as multiple element for insertion or query, are indicated by three period characters, for example ...

Commands usually require a key's name as their first argument and an element to add or to query.


Some commands has complexity O(k) which indicated the number of hash functions. The number of hash functions is constant and complexity may be considered O(1).
