We have been working heavily on the cloud monitoring features available on Domotz. Domotz is a tool for network device monitoring and management for those of you new here.
We recently added a Redis Monitoring Tool, which is available through our custom drivers.
What is Redis?
Redis, which stands for Remote Dictionary Server, is a fast, open-source, in-memory, key-value data store. It is a NoSQL database system predominantly known for its speed, performance, and flexible data structures. The project started when Salvatore Sanfilippo, the original developer of Redis, wanted to improve the scalability of his Italian startup. From there, he developed Redis as a database, cache, message broker, and queue.
You can use Redis for many activities:
- Caching: Firstly, this is by far the most popular use case of the Redis database. Moreover, real-time applications that deal with vast amounts of data use Redis as low latency, highly available in-memory cache.
- Database: Modern applications use Redis as a primary database to reduce the complexity of using it with another database.
- Streaming Engine: Additionally, the in-memory data store of Redis can power live streams of data.
- Message Broker: Lastly, this is a critical component of high-scale distributed systems. Redis implements a pub/sub messaging queue that supports pattern matching along with different types of data structures.
More details are here.
What can you do with Redis?
Redis can be used with streaming solutions such as Apache Kafka and Amazon Kinesis as an in-memory data store to ingest, process, and analyze real-time data with a latency of just a few seconds. It’s ideal for real-time use of social media analytics, ad targeting, personalization, and IoT.
Additionally, it provides data structures such as strings, hashes, lists, and sorted sets with range queries, bitmaps, hyper logs, geospatial indexes, and streams.
Some of the widespread use cases for Redis include the following:
- Chat, messaging, and queues
- Gaming leaderboards
- Session storing
- Machine learning
- Real-time analytics
Who uses Redis?
Many popular websites are using Redis. Examples of famous companies using Redis include; Twitter, GitHub, Shopify, Airbnb, hellofresh, stripe, Uber, and many others. Many smaller organizations are using Redis as well. Sys admins and network administrators are generally responsible for using Redis.
Domotz Redis Monitoring Tool
The best way to ensure a healthy and stable Redis system is to set up a comprehensive Redis monitoring tool to provide meaningful monitoring of all Redis performance metrics.
Our Redis Monitoring helps you manage your Redis system through Domotz.
The integration offers proactive Redis monitoring by extracting information like configuration, resource consumption (memory, CPU, etc.), cluster definition, replication statistics, connected client information, and more.
You may also need to monitor your Redis instance with a tool if you are using Redis. Moreover, the good news is that we now offer a Redis Monitoring Tool through Domotz.
- Proactive Redis monitoring with our tool
- You can extract configuration, resource consumption (memory, CPU, etc.), cluster definition, replication statistics, connected client information, and more.
- Review the configuration and essential performance of your Redis server
- Check Replication, Cluster, Keyspace, and Clients on your Redis server
- Extract relevant statistics from your Redis server, such as persistence information
- Our Redis monitoring tool includes server resource usage
Enabling the custom integration for Redis monitoring on Domotz is easy and fast. Learn about the few steps to follow on our Redis Monitoring integration page.

To conclude, our Redis Monitoring Tool leverages our custom integration features. Additionally, the scripts use Telnet to connect to the Redis instance over the Redis port (default 6379) and extract the required information. Moreover, our Redis Monitoring tool has various integration scripts to offer a complete set of variables and stats you can monitor. Furthermore, these new integrations join our growing Cloud & App Monitoring integrations list. Lastly, for more information, visit our website, Redis integration guide.
