Since:
4.0.0

The MEMORY STATS command returns an @array-reply about the memory usage of the server.

The information about memory usage is provided as metrics and their respective values. The following metrics are reported:

  • peak.allocated: Peak memory consumed by Valkey in bytes (see INFO's used_memory_peak)
  • total.allocated: Total number of bytes allocated by Valkey using its allocator (see INFO's used_memory)
  • startup.allocated: Initial amount of memory consumed by Valkey at startup in bytes (see INFO's used_memory_startup)
  • replication.backlog: Size in bytes of the replication backlog (see INFO's repl_backlog_active)
  • 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)
  • cluster.links: Memory usage by cluster links (see INFO's mem_cluster_links).
  • aof.buffer: The summed size in bytes of AOF related buffers.
  • lua.caches: the summed size in bytes of the overheads of the Lua scripts' caches
  • functions.caches: the summed size in bytes of the overheads of the Function scripts' caches
  • dbXXX: For each of the server's databases, the overheads of the main and expiry dictionaries (overhead.hashtable.main and overhead.hashtable.expires, respectively) are reported in bytes
  • overhead.db.hashtable.lut: Total overhead of dictionary buckets in databases (Added in Valkey 8.0)
  • overhead.db.hashtable.rehashing: Temporary memory overhead of database dictionaries currently being rehashed (Added in Valkey 8.0)
  • overhead.total: The sum of all overheads, i.e. startup.allocated, replication.backlog, clients.slaves, clients.normal, aof.buffer and those of the internal data structures that are used in managing the Valkey keyspace (see INFO's used_memory_overhead)
  • db.dict.rehashing.count: Number of DB dictionaries currently being rehashed (Added in Valkey 8.0)
  • keys.count: The total number of keys stored across all databases in the server
  • keys.bytes-per-key: The ratio between dataset.bytes and keys.count
  • dataset.bytes: The size in bytes of the dataset, i.e. overhead.total subtracted from total.allocated (see INFO's used_memory_dataset)
  • dataset.percentage: The percentage of dataset.bytes out of the total memory usage
  • peak.percentage: The percentage of total.allocated out of peak.allocated
  • allocator.allocated: See INFO's allocator_allocated
  • allocator.active: See INFO's allocator_active
  • allocator.resident: See INFO's allocator_resident
  • allocator.muzzy: See INFO's allocator_muzzy
  • allocator-fragmentation.ratio: See INFO's allocator_frag_ratio
  • allocator-fragmentation.bytes: See INFO's allocator_frag_bytes
  • allocator-rss.ratio: See INFO's allocator_rss_ratio
  • allocator-rss.bytes: See INFO's allocator_rss_bytes
  • rss-overhead.ratio: See INFO's rss_overhead_ratio
  • rss-overhead.bytes: See INFO's rss_overhead_bytes
  • fragmentation: See INFO's mem_fragmentation_ratio
  • fragmentation.bytes: See INFO's mem_fragmentation_bytes

A note about the word slave used in this man page: If not for Redis OSS compatibility, the Valkey project does not use 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.
