Redis moduleedit

This module periodically fetches metrics from Redis servers.

Module-specific configuration notesedit

The Redis module has these additional config options:

The password to authenticate, by default it’s empty.
The duration to remain idle before closing connections. If the value is zero, then idle connections are not closed. The default value is 2 times the module period to allow a connection to be reused across fetches. The idle_timeout should be set to less than the server’s connection timeout.
The network type to be used for the Redis connection. The default value is tcp.
The maximum number of concurrent connections to Redis. The default value is 10.


The Redis metricsets were tested with Redis 3.2.4 and are expected to work with all version >= 3.0.

Example configurationedit

The Redis module supports the standard configuration options that are described in Specify which modules to run. Here is an example configuration:

- module: redis
  metricsets: ["info", "keyspace"]
  period: 10s

  # Redis hosts
  hosts: [""]

  # Timeout after which time a metricset should return an error
  # Timeout is by default defined as period, as a fetch of a metricset
  # should never take longer then period, as otherwise calls can pile up.
  #timeout: 1s

  # Optional fields to be added to each event
  #  datacenter: west

  # Network type to be used for redis connection. Default: tcp
  #network: tcp

  # Max number of concurrent connections. Default: 10
  #maxconn: 10

  # Filters can be used to reduce the number of fields sent.
  #  - include_fields:
  #      fields: ["beat", "metricset", ""]

  # Redis AUTH password. Empty by default.
  #password: foobared


The following metricsets are available:
