This release of the Python agent adds support for aioredis, enhances support for redis and aredis, and fixes a deprecation.
Add support for aioredis
The agent will now automatically instrument and send metrics for applications using the Redis and StrictRedis clients for aioredis.
Enhanced support for redis and aredis
The agent now instruments a more extensive list of commands for redis and aredis clients. This includes commands under the search, graph, timeseries, json, sentinel, and bf modules.
New Relic recommends that you upgrade the agent regularly and at a minimum every 3 months. As of this release, the oldest supported version is 184.108.40.206.
