Track your Redis server's health and prevent problems before they occur.

Table of Contents
RedisMonitor tracks the health and performance of your Redis server, providing you with comprehensive graphs that will help you diagnose and fix problems before they affect your users.
All paid RedisMonitor plans include an interactive map of Redis memory usage and historical graphs of the largest keys. RedisMonitor makes it easy to save memory (and money) by exposing large keys, memory leaks, and unused keys.
RedisMonitor works with all popular Redis add-on services and requires no additional code or configuration in your app.
You can use the Heroku CLI to add RedisMonitor to your app. If you know your Redis URL, you can provide it when creating your RedisMonitor to begin graphing immediately using the “–url” flag:
$ heroku addons:create redismonitor:monitor0 --url redis://x:firstname.lastname@example.org:11001/
If you don’t know your Redis URL, you can still add RedisMonitor to your app — you’ll simply be prompted to enter it when you open the RedisMonitor dashboard.
$ heroku addons:create redismonitor:monitor0
$ heroku addons:create redismonitor:monitor0 --url `heroku config:get REDIS_URL`
Heroku Private Spaces do not allow external connections for data services by default, but they can be enabled using Trusted IP ranges for data services. You can find the list of IP addresses that RedisMonitor uses to connect to your Redis server in RedisMonitor’s documentation. When using CIDR notation to specify the IP addresses, you can use a mask of
/32 for each IP address, e.g.
184.108.40.206/32, to ensure only RedisMonitor’s IP addresses are used.
$ heroku addons:create redismonitor:monitor0 --url `heroku config:get OPENREDIS_URL`
$ heroku addons:create redismonitor:monitor0 --url `heroku config:get REDISCLOUD_URL`
Redis To Go
$ heroku addons:create redismonitor:monitor0 --url `heroku config:get REDISTOGO_URL`
Viewing the RedisMonitor dashboard
To access your RedisMonitor dashboard, click on the RedisMonitor link on your app’s Heroku Dashboard page. You will be automatically redirected and logged in to your RedisMonitor dashboard.
Updating your Redis URL
Your RedisMonitor’s Redis URL can be changed by clicking the “Settings” button on your RedisMonitor dashboard. You will not lose any graph data — RedisMonitor will simply begin graphing the new values in your existing graphs.
See “Updating your Redis URL” above.
After you remove RedisMonitor from your app, your Redis server will no longer be monitored and your graph data will be erased.
RedisMonitor can be removed from your app via the Heroku CLI:
$ heroku addons:destroy redismonitor
