...Violets are bluis

Enable that Foglight SQLServer cartridge...

...and maybe the Redis one toois!

Ok, then...

The Foglight for Redis (v. 6.1.1) cartridge is now generally available (11/28/22).

In the coming weeks, I suspect the SE team will deliver some Foglight-centric blogs as it relates to Redis monitoring.

But first, I thought it might be a good idea to start with some basic Redis information.

(In other words, I googled it for you.)

  • Redis stands for "Remote Dictionary Server"
  • Redis is Open-Source
    • Open-Source - The software is developed via a community, collaboratively. It is publicly accessible to modify, and/or distribute its code base.
  • Redis is In-Memory
    • In-Memory - Instead of on disk, data is stored on the primary memory resulting in faster read/write operations.
  • Redis is NoSQL
    • NoSQL ("not only SQL") stores data differently than relational tables. Flexible schemas provide easier scaling with large data sets/loads. Types include types key-value, wide-column, and graph. 
  • Redis can be considered Key-Value - Data is stored in a “key-value” format, optimized for reading and writing data.
    • **Redis differentiates itself because it is a data structures server that allows for supporting different kinds of values.
