Redis exporter

Tier: Free, Premium, Ultimate Offering: Self-managed

The Redis exporter enables you to measure various Redis metrics. For more information on what is exported, read the upstream documentation.

For self-compiled installations, you must install and configure it yourself.

To enable the Redis exporter:

  1. Enable Prometheus.
  2. Edit /etc/gitlab/gitlab.rb.
  3. Add (or find and uncomment) the following line, making sure it’s set to true:

    redis_exporter['enable'] = true
  4. Save the file and reconfigure GitLab for the changes to take effect.

Prometheus begins collecting performance data from the Redis exporter exposed at localhost:9121.
