  • uptime_in_seconds - number of seconds since Redis server start
  • uptime_in_days - same value expressed in days
  • hz - redis expiration rate
  • lru_clock - clock incrementing every minute, for LRU management
  • config_file - full path of the configuration file

Clients - Client connections section

  • blocked_clients - number of clients pending on a blocking call (BLPOP, BRPOP, BRPOPLPUSH)

Memory - Memory consumption related information

  • used_memory - total number of bytes allocated by Redis using its allocator (either standard libc, jemalloc, or an alternative allocator such as tcmalloc
  • used_memory_human - human readable representation of previous value (used_memory in MB or GB)
  • used_memory_rss - number of bytes that Redis allocated as seen by the operating system (a.k.a resident set size). This is the number reported by tools such as top(1) and ps(1)
  • used_memory_peak - peak memory consumed by Redis (in bytes)
  • used_memory_peak_human - human readable representation of previous value (used_memory_peak in MB or GB)
  • used_memory_lua - number of bytes used by the Lua engine
  • mem_fragmentation_ratio - ratio between used_memory_rss and used_memory
  • mem_allocator - memory allocator, chosen at compile time

Persistence - RDB and AOF related information

  • loading - flag indicating if the load of a dump file is on-going
  • rdb_changes_since_last_save - number of changes since the last dump
