Redis provides several commands to monitor and optimize its performance. These commands can help you understand how your Redis instance is behaving and where potential bottlenecks might be.
INFO command in Redis can provide a wealth of information about the current state of your Redis server. This includes things like memory usage, CPU usage, number of connected clients, and more.
Here's an example of using the INFO command:
This will return a lot of data. To get specific information about performance, look for sections starting with
# CPU etc.
MONITOR command is a debugging command that streams back every command processed by the Redis server. It can be useful for understanding what's happening on your Redis server at any given moment but be cautious as it may decrease overall performance due to the high amount of data it outputs.
SLOWLOG command gets and sets the Redis slow queries log. This can be very helpful to understand which commands are taking the most time to execute and how often they are called.
For example, to get the five slowest queries:
To configure Redis to keep track of the 100 slowest queries, you can use the
CONFIG SET command:
In the above,
slowlog-log-slower-than is set to 10000 microseconds (10 milliseconds), and
slowlog-max-len is set to keep track of the top 100 slow queries.
Remember to use these tools wisely and make sure you don't affect your Redis performance negatively while trying to monitor it. As always, testing in a non-production environment first is recommended.
