On Monday, October 26, 2020, Grafana kicked off ObservabilityCON. The virtual conference included live talks and demos on the newest features, functionality, use cases, and just about everything else in the open source observability ecosystem. After the keynote session, we presented our session on Real-time Observability with Redis and Grafana.
We talked about the integration of Grafana and Redis and presented three real-life applications built with Redis Data Source for Grafana, including monitoring COVID-19 cases, weather, and a pop-up store app that uses RedisGears to process incoming data. Additionally, we showed how to use the Redis Data Source and the three command types it supports: Redis commands, RedisTimeSeries, and universal inputs. Finally, we demonstrated the new Redis Application Plug-in for Grafana with a custom Redis CLI panel.
