Redis integration for Grafana Cloud

Redis is an in-memory data structure store frequently used as a key-value data store, cache, and message broker. The Redis integration enables the Grafana Agent to send metrics to Grafana Cloud. The integration also creates a useful default dashboard for visualization of Redis metrics within Grafana Cloud.

This integration monitors a single Redis server. See below for information about monitoring more than one Redis server.

Use the walkthrough in Grafana Cloud to install the Redis integration.

Post-install configuration for the Redis integration

We strongly recommend that you configure a separate user for the Agent, and give it only the strictly mandatory security privileges necessary for monitoring your node. For more information, see the official documentation.

In the agent config YAML file, add this section and change the redis_addr to the address of the Redis server you want to monitor:

integrations:
  redis_exporter:
    enabled: true
    redis_addr: "redis:6379"

For a full description of configuration options, including guidance on monitoring more than one Redis server, see redis_exporter_config in the Agent documentation.
