This query is typically used to monitor the performance and usage of a Redis server. If the number of commands processed is increasing rapidly, it may indicate high traffic or potential performance issues.
To get the total number of commands processed by the Redis server, you can use the
info method in phpRedis extension which retrieves statistics about the server:
In this example, we first establish a connection to the Redis server running on localhost (127.0.0.1) port 6379. Then we call the
info method, which returns an associative array containing various statistical information about the server. We then print the number of total commands processed.
Q: What does 'total commands processed' mean? A: It's a counter that increases each time a command is called on the Redis server.
Q: Can I reset the 'total commands processed' count? A: No, it cannot be reset without restarting the Redis server. This is a cumulative metric since the server started.
