ApsaraDB for Redis integrates the key analysis feature of Database Autonomy Service (DAS) to provide the real-time key statistics feature. This feature allows you to view large keys and hotkeys in instances in real time. It also allows you to query large keys and hotkeys that were generated within the last four days. You can use this feature to obtain key information, such as the access frequency of keys and the number of elements, and optimize the instance based on the information.
This feature is unavailable for ApsaraDB for Redis Enhanced Edition (Tair) ESSD-based instances.
ApsaraDB for Redis sorts list, hash, set, and zset keys based on the number of elements in these keys. ApsaraDB for Redis considers the top three keys that have the most elements as large keys. If two keys have the same number of elements, the key that first reaches this number ranks higher.
ApsaraDB for Redis uses efficient sorting and statistical algorithms based on the Least Recently Used (LRU) key eviction policy to identify hotkeys in an instance.
- Log on to the ApsaraDB for Redis console and go to the Instances page. In the top navigation bar, select the region in which the instance that you want to manage resides. Then, find the instance and click its ID.
In the left-side navigation pane, choose .
Click the Real-time tab to view real-time data or click the History tab to view historical data based on your business requirements.Note
If the instance is a cluster instance or a read/write splitting instance, you can select a node from the Current Node drop-down list.
If the queries per second (QPS) of a key reaches 6,000, the system stops calculating the accurate QPS of the key. In this case, >=6000 is displayed for such a hotkey in the Access Frequency column.
On the History tab, you can query the historical large keys and hotkeys within the last four days. The time range to query cannot exceed 3 hours. For example, if the current time is 16:00 on July 15, 2021, you can query the large keys and hotkeys from 16:00 on July 11 to 16:00 on July 15. If you set the beginning of the time range to query to 16:00 on July 11, the end of the time range to query cannot be later than 19:00 on July 11.
