"A django application that displays the load and other statistics about your memcached instances in the admin."

Project description


This app displays the current load and some statistics for your memcached instances in the index view of your Django admin section.

Currently these memcached bindings are tested:




✅ Works fine


❎ Does not provide stats

Other bindings may provide statistics too.

Compatibility Matrix:






3.2 (LTS)



4.2 (LTS)


First add memcache_status to your INSTALLED_APPS list.

    # ...

Then you have two options:

  1. The quickest way is to replace your Django Admin index page with the one provided by django-memcache-status. This will show the memcache stats in the top left column. This was the regular behavior of django-memcache-status prior to version 2.0.

    Place this in any file of your project:

    from django.contrib import admin = 'memcache_status/admin_index.html'
  2. If you need to manually place the stats, simply add the CSS file and include the memcache-status template anywhere you like:

    <link rel="stylesheet" href="{% static "memcache_status.css" %}"/>
    {% include "memcache_status/memcache_status.html" %}

Local Development

Install the package using Pipenv and run the tests:

$ pipenv install --dev
$ pipenv run test

You can test against a matrix of Python and Django versions using tox:

$ tox

Once run you will see a coverage report in /tmp/coverage_report/django-memcache-status.

You can run a local runserver with the test application to see the admin:

$ pipenv run migrate
$ pipenv run createsuperuser
$ pipenv run runserver

To test a specific cache backend define it in the env variable:

$ TEST_CACHE_BACKEND=django-pylibmc pipenv run runserver


v2.3 (2023-04-30):

  • Compatibility and tests for Django 3.2 to 4.2, and Python 3.11.

  • Dropped support for Django 2.2.

v2.2 (2020-02-05):

  • Compatibility and tests for Django 2.2 and 3.0, and Python 3.8.

  • Use pytest for testing.

v2.1 (2019-03-21):

  • Removed some deprecated django-debug-toolbar and pre-Django 1.11 related workarounds.

  • More comprehensive unittests across all backends and it’s relation with django-debug-toolbar.

v2.0 (2019-03-16):

  • Compatibility and tests for Django 1.11 → 2.1 and Python 2.7 → 3.7.

  • Full code cleanup and update to latest standards.

  • Tested against a variety of memcache bindings.

  • Pipenv support for local development and testing.

  • [Backwards Incompatible] memcache-status no longer automatically overwrites the admin index template to add the stats. Instead you have the option to either manually display the stats anywhere you like using a template include, or use the contributed memcache-status admin index page that overwrites the vanilla Django template and adds statistics to the top left admin index page. This was the regular behavior of django-memcache-status prior to version 2.0.

v1.3 (2016-10-13):

  • Django 1.10 compatibility and test integration. Python 3 compatibility.

v1.2 (2009-11-06):

  • package is likely working with Django 1.4+.
