Monitoring Redis with New Relic

Redis is an open source, key-value data structure store. With fast performance and simple onboarding, it can be used as a database, cache, and message broker for businesses across many industries. Redis offers fast handling for in-memory, schema-less database transactions, the ability to ingest and analyze very large datasets, and data caching for high-performance applications.

What you can monitor with our Redis integration

Connected clients

Monitor your connections to make sure you aren't serving too many at once.



Byte input and output

Track your active data both in and out of the database. 

System CPU usage

Keep an eye on CPU usage, both by the Redis server and any background processes. 

You need to know what’s happening in your Redis database

The performance of your application is directly affected by the performance of your database, so you need a holistic view of the entire stack to ensure you’re delivering continuous value to your users. New Relic Infrastructure gathers crucial performance and health metrics about Redis so you can easily troubleshoot common issues and improve overall database performance.

Redis Inventory Data Tracking

While knowing how parts of your infrastructure are performing is important, knowing why those parts are performing a certain way is imperative to the success of your business. To this end, New Relic uses the Redis Config Get command to gather inventory data as part of this integration so you can track your Redis inventory and changes to it. If you make configuration changes to your Redis server, those changes are captured as inventory data, which allows you to correlate those changes with performance or reliability concerns.

Redis Inventory Data Tracking

Redis performance alerts

Get alerts when your Redis Database performance is degrading. You can manually set an alert on any of the metrics captured. For example, set an alert when the number of requests per second drops to zero.
