What is the Grafana Redis Datasource?

The Grafana Redis Datasource, is a plugin that allows users to connect to Redis database and build dashboards in Grafana to easily monitor Redis data. It provides out-of-the box predefined dashboards - but the plugin allows to build entirely customized dashboards, tuned to your needs.

What is Grafana?

If you are not familiar with Grafana yet, it is a very popular tool used to build dashboards allowing to monitor applications, infrastructures and any kind of software components.

What Grafana version is supported?

Only Grafana 7.0 and later with a new plugin platform supported.

Does this datasource require anything special configured on the Redis databases?

Datasource can connect to any Redis database. No special configuration is required.

Build datasource

To learn step by step how to build Redis Datasource from scratch and register in new or existing Grafana please take a look at BUILD instructions.

Getting Started

Install using grafana-cli

Use the grafana-cli tool to install from the commandline:

grafana-cli plugins install redis-datasource

Run using docker-compose

Project provides docker-compose.yml to start Redis with RedisTimeSeries module and Grafana 7.0.

Start Redis and Grafana

docker-compose up

Open Grafana in your browser http://localhost:3000 and configure datasource. You can add as many datasources as you want to support multiple Redis databases.


There are certain settings that can be configured based on your own setup:

  • Grafana port
  • Datasource URL

Configure Grafana port in docker-compose.yml

If standard port 3000 is occupied by another application update the port to bind Grafana to

      - '3000:3000'

Configure Datasource url in provisioning/datasources/redis.yaml

If Redis is running and listening on localhost:6379 no changes are required

    url: redis://localhost:6379

If Redis is running as Docker container on MacOS, please update host to host.docker.internal

    url: redis://host.docker.internal:6379

Supported Commands

Datasource supports many Redis commands using custom components and provide unified interface to query any command.


Template variables

Template variables can query any command and use other variables as parameters.
