The OpenTelemetry Collector provides an integration with Redis through a receiver in the contrib repo located at OpenTelemetry Collector Contrib. The Collector fetches metrics from the configured path in the Redis receiver. From there, the metrics are processed and exported to Cloud Observability.
To complete the integration, you will:
You’ve configured the Collector to export metric data to Cloud Observability.
In the Collector configuration file, add Redis as a receiver and set the Redis endpoint.
The OpenTelemetry repo’s readme provides additional details about Redis configuration.
Once the Redis receiver is configured, enable it by adding it to one or more pipelines as described in the Collector configuration documentation.
You can validate that metrics are reporting to Cloud Observability on the Metrics details page in Organization settings.
In Cloud Observability, click Organization settings > Metric details.
Search for Redis metric names.
See the receiver’s metadata file for a complete list of emitted metrics.
If needed, click on the metric to edit the description and how the units are displayed in Cloud Observability.
For a more complete example that’s ready to run, see the Redis integration in Cloud Observability OpenTelemetry Examples.
