Azure Cache for Redis is based on the popular software Redis. It is typically used as a cache to improve the performance and scalability of systems that rely heavily on back-end data stores. Performance is improved by temporarily copying frequently accessed data to fast storage located close to the application. This fast storage is located in-memory with Azure Cache for Redis instead of being loaded from disk by a database.

Use the OpsRamp Azure public cloud integration to discover and collect metrics against the Azure service.

Setup

To set up the OpsRamp Azure integration and discover the Azure service, go to Azure Integration Discovery Profile and select Redis Cache.
