New Relic infrastructure monitoring provides an integration for Microsoft Azure Redis Cache that reports data to New Relic. This document explains how to activate this integration and describes the data that can be captured.
New Relic's integration for Azure Redis Cache reports metrics about your Azure Redis Cache service, such as the number of connected clients, the number of GET and SET commands used, and write/read bytes per second. It also collects data about the status and configuration of the service.
You can monitor and alert on your Azure Redis Cache data from New Relic Infrastructure UI, and you can create custom queries and chart dashboards.
To enable this integration, follow standard procedures to activate your Azure service in New Relic.
Configuration and polling
You can change the polling frequency and filter data using configuration options.
Default polling information for the Azure Functions integration:
- Default polling interval: 5 minutes
- Resolution: 1 data point per minute
Find and use data
To find your integration data, go to one.newrelic.com > Infrastructure > Azure and select the Azure Redis Cache integration.
You can query and explore your data using the
AzureRedisCacheSample event type and, when shards are configured in the service, the
AzureRedisCacheShardSample event type.
For more on how to find and use integration data, see Understand and use data.
To view metrics reported by the Azure Redis Cache integration, query the
AzureRedisCacheShardSample event type. Use the metadata associated with each metric to filter and facet the data being reported. For detailed metric information, see the Azure supported metrics documentation. For more details, see the Azure Redis Cache documentation.
