Monitoring Redis Enterprise Cloud is important for understanding the performance and behavior of your database, identifying issues quickly, and optimizing operations. You can check out metrics about memory usage, client connections, cache hit rates, operation durations etc.
Two primary methods to monitor Redis Enterprise Cloud are:
The Redis Enterprise Software comes with a built-in web-based management user interface, known as the Redis Enterprise Cluster Manager. This provides key metrics and alerts about your databases' health and performance.
You can access it via
Here, you will find charts displaying various metrics like throughput (ops/sec), latency, data size, and more.
You can also use dedicated monitoring tools that offer in-depth insights and alerting features.
Datadog integrates well with Redis. Here's a simple way to setup Datadog for Redis:
Another approach is using Prometheus for metric collection and Grafana for visualization. Both work together seamlessly.
Here's an example of configuring Redis exporter for Prometheus:
Finally, you can use Grafana to create dashboards using the collected metrics.
Remember to select appropriate monitoring tools based on your project need, team skillset, and operational constraints. Be sure to set up alerting, so you can take proactive measures when critical metrics exceed certain thresholds.
