Learn how to send Redis data collected by collectd to Wavefront.

Redis is an in-memory data structure store, often used as a database, cache and message broker. We recommend the collectd Redis Python plugin. See [collectd Redis plugin documentation] (https://github.com/powdahound/redis-collectd-plugin). There are 2 types of Redis nodes that can be monitored with collectd: Masters and Slaves.

Installation

  1. To monitor a Redis master node, on your collectd host, copy the example configuration into /etc/collectd/managed_config/.
  2. To monitor a Redis slave node, on your collectd host, copy the example configuration into /etc/collectd/managed_config/.
  3. Edit the settings in the file for your Redis servers.
  4. Restart collectd.
