ManageEngine expands NoSQL support with Redis monitoring
Applications Manager delivers ‘operational intelligence’ for Redis key-value store
Real-time IT management company ManageEngine, today announced support for the Redis key-value store in its on-premise application performance monitoring solution, Applications Manager.
The move is aimed at providing operational intelligence to Applications Manager users who are also running Redis, helping them ensure high availability and performance for business applications that rely on Redis.
Monitoring the open source, high performance key-value store can be intimidating for IT departments. When Redis is partitioned into multiple instances, optimising the performance of all the available instances can be a challenge. Likewise, when multiple slave copies of the Redis server are configured via master-slave replication, ensuring data synchronisation between master and slave instances is a burden, ManageEngine argues.
The performance analytics from Applications Manager are designed to help IT devops staff understand and optimise the usage of Redis and Redis-powered apps.
“More organisations are investing in NoSQL technologies to help solve new business problems involving Web, mobile and cloud environments,” said Sridhar Iyengar, vice president of product management at ManageEngine.
“Today’s Redis announcement demonstrates that Applications Manager is committed to meeting the NoSQL challenge that we undertook earlier this year when we added support for Cassandra and MongoDB. Going forward, we will continue to provide meaningful performance stats for IT operations and application development teams seeking to better manage their NoSQL technologies.”
Applications Manager is geared towards enabling comprehensive Redis performance monitoring to minimise downtime and optimise the performance of cloud apps powered by the Redis store. The key performance metrics of Redis monitored by Applications Manager include used memory, data size, replication, slow queries, and persistence of Redis dataset.
Applications Manager’s Redis monitoring is designed to help IT personnel to monitor the data size of the Redis store and take preventive actions before the memory size grows out of proportion. It also tracks the number of available and blocked connections between the database and the client as well as the connections rejected, and additionally it keeps tabs on the operations affecting the Redis data space and provides stats on the number of keys that are found to be expired or evicted due to memory limits.
Applications Manager is available immediately with prices for the Professional Edition starting at $795 for up to 25 servers or applications. A free, fully functional, 30-day trial version is available here.
