Is it possible to instrument Redis via APM with Java agents to get a visual representation of transactions?

Creator

Is it possible to instrument Redis via APM with Java agents to get a visual representation of transactions?

I know there is an extension for Redis metrics, but is it possible to instrument Redis via APM using java agent or other agent to get a visual representation of the transcations as you do with any .net or standard java application? I'm not seeing that you can.

Hi. According to what I'm seeing, Redis is written in C, so we could not instrument it with an APM agent.

Re: Is it possible to instrument Redis via APM with Java agents to get a visual representation of transactions?

I understand that instrumentation of redis itself is not possible as it is written in "C".

 

But isn´t it possible to see redis calls as a "Remote Service" like Kafka-Topics, HTTP-Requests or called Webservices to get generell statistics for these calls (calls, errors, resp-time) gathered by the java-agent?

 

Maybe there is a way to add manual instrumentation for this?
