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

Redis is an in-memory data structure store, often used as a database, cache and message broker. Tanzu Observability supports a built-in integration that gets data from Redis using Telegraf. If you want to use collectd instead, follow the instructions on this page.

We recommend the collectd Redis Python plugin. See collectd Redis plugin documentation. 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.
