Optional: Creating a Redis cluster in a collector pool

Use this procedure to cluster the Redis caching service (collectorredis) in collector pools. Clustering increases the efficiency of multi-host collectors by ensuring that cached configurations are used effectively between collectorredis restarts.
  1. Log in to the Control Center browser interface.
  2. In the Applications table, click Zenoss.resmgr.
  3. Scroll down to the Services table, locate and open the collectorredis service of a collector pool.
    The DFS permission of the collector pool to modify must be disabled.
  4. On the collectorredis page, click Edit Service.
  5. In the Instances field, enter the number of hosts in the collector pool, and then click Save Changes.
