The Redpanda Integration offers effortless access to performance metrics, allowing users to visualize key insights in our dashboard. Identify bottlenecks swiftly and optimize Redpanda’s performance seamlessly.

Prerequisites

Middleware Host Agent (MW Agent) must be installed on your local machine. To install the MW Agent, see our Installation Guide.

Setup

Step 1: Access Integrations

Login to your Middleware account, navigate to the Redpanda integration, and connect Redpanda

Step 2: Connect Redpanda Instance

To access Redpanda metrics, choose a host to connect to your Redpanda instance

Monitoring multiple brokers with a single host agent is not currently available.

Step 3: Configure Your Host

Configure your host to connect to the IP address and port that Redpanda stores its metrics

The default port for your Redpanda instance is 9664

Visualize Your Data

Default Redpanda Dashboard

Quickly access your Redpanda data with Middleware’s default Redpanda dashboard. Navigate to the Dashboard Builder and select the Redpanda - Metrics (Runtime) Dashboard

Create Redpanda Widgets

Create your own widget from scratch. Navigate to the Dashboard Builder and select the dashboard you would like to create a widget in. Select Add New Widget and choose the redpanda data source.
