The Librato out-of-the-box integration with Redis gives you a number of metrics that you can incorporate into your Redis management.

The data tier has in the past been a significant choke point in architectures backed by relational engines, and as a result it has seen a high level of innovation in recent years. Redis is one of these innovations. It’s become a very popular cache for the data tier and also a primary store for many scenarios, both because of its performance but also because of its simplicity and power.

What are the operational issues you face as an operations engineer or developer in charge of Redis? Clearly, you want to track memory consumption to make sure your snapshots will work. You want to track changes in memory values to make sure you are not exposed to data loss. In a single-threaded system, you will want to also monitor the number of commands that you are executing.

With Librato, you will have visibility into all that and more, in just a few minutes.
