How to watch Redis activity

Reading Time: 1 minute



$ redis-cli

Then, type MONITOR.


redis-cli – the Redis command line interface. It has an interactive REPL (Read Eval Print Loop) mode where the user types Redis commands and received replies, and a command mode where redis-cli is executed with additional arguments and the reply is printed to the standard output. We use it here in the interactive mode.

Similarly to the Pub/Sub mode, the monitoring mode is entered automatically once you use the MONITOR command. All commands received by the active Redis instance will be printed to the standard output:

$ redis-cli MONITOR
1460100081.165665 [0] "set" "shipment:8000736522714:status" "sorting"
1460100083.053365 [0] "get" "shipment:8000736522714:status"
