An easy to use monitoring solution for Redis

Using Redis Data Source for Grafana

Recently, I discovered a nice way of plugging in monitoring for Redis using Grafana, thanks to this great Data Source plugin that works with any Redis database, including Azure Cache for Redis!

It’s really easy to setup and try

Setup an Azure Cache for Redis instance

docker run -d -p 3000:3000 --name=grafana -e "GF_INSTALL_PLUGINS=redis-datasource" grafana/grafana

That’s not all

There is a nice dashboard which comes with the Data Source — https://grafana.com/grafana/dashboards/12776.

This is just the beginning…

I am not a Grafana expert, but pretty sure there is lots more to explore. I will try playing around with custom dashboards and other supported Redis Data structures such as Streams etc.
