Current riemann-redis tool only accepts host, port and (optional) password to connect to a Redis server. However it's better if it would additionally would accept an URL in case the user want to connect using via TCP or via socket. Auth is also possible to be specified from there.

Also it currently issues an INFO and sends all the data converted to float by using #to_f. While this conversion is possible for most of the values returned by INFO, some values are actually strings, which will be converted to 0 in that case, most notably aof_last_bgrewrite_status and rdb_last_bgsave_status, which reports ok or error.

Last but not least, Redis 2.6+ allows to query just for a section of the metrics, so it would be nice if each metric could be tagged properly depending on its section:

  • server: General information about the Redis server
  • clients: Client connections section
  • memory: Memory consumption related information
  • persistence: RDB and AOF related information
  • stats: General statistics
  • replication: Master/slave replication information
  • cpu: CPU consumption statistics
  • commandstats: Redis command statistics
  • cluster: Redis Cluster section
  • keyspace: Database related statistics
