  • Hi Liam,

    In the Azure Portal, there is reporting functionality specifically for connected clients: Available metrics and reporting intervals

    This should get you what you are looking for. Let us know if you have any further questions.

  • I cannot view the details of the ConnectedClients of my Redis. I can only view the chart I made such as the Resource, Metric NameSpace, Metric, Aggregation. After creating the chart, I look for the other info but to no avail. I cannot see the details of this ConnectedClient chart..

  • In looking through additional documentation, the `connected clients` metric is a count and not a value such as IP Address or DNS Name. 

    Connected Clients

    The number of client connections to the cache during the specified reporting interval. This maps to connected_clients from the Redis INFO command. Once the connection limit is reached subsequent connection attempts to the cache will fail. Note that even if there are no active client applications, there may still be a few instances of connected clients due to internal processes and connections.

    And as discussed in the How to troubleshoot Azure Cache for Redis document, there are no strategies detailed for gathering client IP. Please Up Vote and comment on the following User Voice entry: Azure Cache for Redis User Voice

    You are also free to email the product group directly: azurecache at to get additional feedback.
