What’s In Your Redis?

Redis Audit

This script samples a number of the Redis keys in a database and then groups them with other similarlooking keys. It then displays key metrics around those groups of keys to help you spot where efficiencies can be made in the memory usage of your Redis database.


In other words, a handy script to get some quick insights into what is in your Redis database.

If possible, I would recommend running it against a back up or local copy of your database.

Too Many Tests

Today’s kids take too many standardized tests.

Already in second and third grade we are seeing silly requirements (such has solving 100 math facts in 5 minutes) because it will help on the standardized tests.

What bothers me most is that the tests are pushed on the kids for financial gains. States pay millions of dollars for these tests. The people behind them are absolutely deplorable.
