The information about memory usage is provided as metrics and their respective values. The following metrics are reported:
peak.allocated: Peak memory consumed by Redis in bytes (see INFO's
total.allocated: Total number of bytes allocated by Redis using its allocator (see INFO's
startup.allocated: Initial amount of memory consumed by Redis at startup in bytes (see INFO's
replication.backlog: Size in bytes of the replication backlog (see INFO's
clients.slaves: The total size in bytes of all replicas overheads (output and query buffers, connection contexts)
clients.normal: The total size in bytes of all clients overheads (output and query buffers, connection contexts)
aof.buffer: The summed size in bytes of the current and rewrite AOF buffers (see INFO's
lua.caches: the summed size in bytes of the overheads of the Lua scripts' caches
dbXXX: For each of the server's databases, the overheads of the main and expiry dictionaries (
overhead.hashtable.expires, respectively) are reported in bytes
overhead.total: The sum of all overheads, i.e.
aof.bufferand those of the internal data structures that are used in managing the Redis keyspace (see INFO's
keys.count: The total number of keys stored across all databases in the server
keys.bytes-per-key: The ratio between net memory usage (
dataset.bytes: The size in bytes of the dataset, i.e.
dataset.percentage: The percentage of
dataset.bytesout of the net memory usage
peak.percentage: The percentage of
fragmentation: See INFO's
Array reply: nested list of memory usage metrics and their values
A note about the word slave used in this man page: Starting with Redis 5, if not for backward compatibility, the Redis project no longer uses the word slave. Unfortunately in this command the word slave is part of the protocol, so we'll be able to remove such occurrences only when this API will be naturally deprecated.
