The redis module in Metricbeat is tested with 3.2 and expected to work for redis versions >= 3. Source: https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/beats/metricbeat/current/metricbeat-module-redis.html

The mysql module in Metricbeat is tested with mysql 5.7.12 and are expected to work with all versions >= 5.7.0. Source: https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/beats/metricbeat/current/metricbeat-module-mysql.html

You could try Metricbeat and see if it's able to connect and parse the data from your versions of those services. In addition to Metricbeat you could deploy Packetbeat which can passively monitor the requests to redis and mysql.

In addition to the getting started guides in the documentation we have some short videos to give a quick overview of Packetbeat and Metricbeat.
