Module Redis Authentication

Hi everyone,

I would like to know it there is some way to configure Redis Module when we have authentication in Redis like in MySQL Module.

- module: redis
  metricsets: ["info"]
  enabled: true
  period: 10s

  # Redis hosts
  hosts: [""]

In MySQL with authentication:

hosts: ["root:secret@tcp("]

Thanks in advance,


Hi Rodrigo,

Sounds like you're looking for password-based authentication?

Hi Giuseppe,

My aim is to carry out a monitoring on Redis by using Redis Module (Link) , not send the Metricbeat's documents/metrics to a Redis which it has a password-based authentication. However, if one use Metricbeat in order to monitoring a Redis where there is a authentication password, in the log. it gives back an error.

Thanks in advance :smiley:


The password option is there, it is/was just not documented. @giuseppe just fixed that:
