What is MetricFire?

MetricFire is a full-scale platform that provides infrastructure, system, and application monitoring using a suite of open-source monitoring tools. We enable you to use Hosted Graphite and aesthetic custom dashboards to visualize your metrics so you can understand what is happening.



MetricFire offers users a complete ecosystem of end-to-end infrastructure monitoring, comprised of popular open-source monitoring software services: Graphite and popular dashboards. Plugins for many other open-source projects are preconfigured, such as StatsD, collectd, and Kubernetes. You get all these within a hosted environment as a single product. Not only does MetricFire fit well into the infrastructure monitoring use-case, such as network monitoring and server monitoring, but we also do application monitoring and business intelligence.


Through this hosted environment, MetricFire boosts the unique features of open-source projects to give you more functionality than the original products. Below are some of the MetricFire features at a glance:

What is AWS MemoryDB?

MetricFire is a cloud-based monitoring solution that helps businesses monitor their infrastructure and applications in real time. It integrates with a wide range of cloud services, including Amazon Web Services (AWS). In this article, we will discuss how MetricFire integrates with AWS MemoryDB to provide better monitoring and observability.


AWS MemoryDB is an in-memory database service that is compatible with Redis. It is designed for high performance and low latency and is well-suited for real-time applications that require sub-millisecond response times. With MemoryDB, users can run Redis workloads with less management overhead and scale their Redis clusters as needed.


MetricFire provides a powerful monitoring solution for MemoryDB that allows users to keep a close eye on their clusters' performance and health. With MetricFire, you can set up custom dashboards and alerts that give you real-time visibility into your MemoryDB clusters' metrics, such as CPU usage, memory usage, and network traffic. MetricFire also provides historical data, so you can track performance trends and identify potential issues before they become critical.


To integrate MetricFire with MemoryDB, you need to follow these simple steps:


  • Set up a MetricFire account: If you don't already have a MetricFire account, you can sign up for a free trial. MetricFire offers a range of plans to suit different needs and budgets, so you can choose the one that works best for you.


  • Create a MemoryDB cluster: You can create a MemoryDB cluster from the AWS Management Console. Once your cluster is up and running, you can connect to it using the Redis CLI or a Redis client.


  • Install the MetricFire agent: To monitor your MemoryDB cluster, you need to install the MetricFire agent on each node in your cluster. The agent collects metrics from MemoryDB and sends them to MetricFire, where they are processed and displayed on your MetricFire dashboard.


  • Configure MetricFire: Once the agent is installed, you need to configure MetricFire to collect the metrics you want to monitor. MetricFire provides a range of pre-built dashboards and alerts for MemoryDB, but you can also create your own custom dashboards and alerts.


  • Start monitoring: With MetricFire and MemoryDB set up, you can start monitoring your clusters' performance and health in real time. MetricFire provides a range of visualization tools, including graphs, charts, and tables, so you can easily track your metrics and identify any issues.


MetricFire provides a powerful monitoring solution for AWS MemoryDB that allows you to keep a close eye on your clusters' performance and health. With MetricFire, you can set up custom dashboards and alerts, track performance trends, and identify potential issues before they become critical. To get started, sign up for a MetricFire account and follow the steps outlined above.
