Redis monitoring and inspection drop-in application using django admin.

Project description

Redis monitoring and inspection drop-in application using django admin.

  • Free software: BSD 2-Clause License


  • Sever statistics in the admin changelist

  • Key summary in the inspect view

  • Value introspection with pagination for lists and sorted sets

Don’t have a django project?

If you just want to run redisboard quickly do this:

pip install django-redisboard

Don’t want to run on Run:

redisboard ip:port

Want a password that ain’t random (you might need to rm -rf ~/.redisboard first tho)? Run:

redisboard --password=foobar

Installation guide

Install from pypi, with pip:

pip install django-redisboard

Add redisboard to INSTALLED_APPS:

INSTALLED_APPS += ("redisboard", )

After that you need to run: migrate

Then you can add redis servers in the admin. You will see the stats in the changelist.

Redisboard has few css tweaks for the pages (they are optional). If you use staticfiles just run: collectstatic

If you do not use django.contrib.staticfiles you must manually symlink the site-packages/redisboard/static/redisboard dir to <your media root>/redisboard.

Optional Django settings

Setting name



Extra connection options. Default: {}. Example:

REDISBOARD_CONNECTION_POOL_OPTIONS = {'socket_timeout': 60, 'socket_connect_timeout': 10}


Default: ''.


Default: ''.


Default: ''.


Default: ''.


A list of regular expressions to match against the keys in the server details colum. Eg, to only show uptime and list of active databases:

REDISBOARD_DETAIL_FILTERS = ['uptime.*', 'db.*']

To show all the details just use:



Mapping of regexes to functions to convert those values. Checkout the sourcecode for what’s available.


Number of slowlog entries to show. Default: 10.


Count used for the various scan commands. Affects pagination for key list and key details. Default: 1000.


Count used just for paginating string values. Default: 10000

To run the all tests run:



8.4.0 (2022-11-16)

  • Added more details in the changelist table (in addition to what is configured in REDISBOARD_DETAIL_FILTERS).

  • Made some of the details in the changelist table more compact.

8.3.1 (2022-10-10)

  • Add missing dependency on attrs.

8.3.0 (2022-05-20)

  • Added a bunch of links to Change/Inspect/Details in various pages and cleaned up code some more.

  • Improved simplified/styling a bit.

8.2.2 (2022-05-19)

  • Fix broken missing key check for databases different than the default one (usually 0) and render a full page instead of a text/plain 404.

8.2.1 (2022-05-18)

  • Fixed issue with key stats being empty for databases different than the default one (usually 0). Turns out pipelines open up a new connection and need a select call.

8.2.0 (2022-05-17)

  • Added a full details page.

  • Added some headings in inspect pages.

  • Fixed model name in breadcrumbs.

  • Fixed empty media in inspect pages.

  • Fixed inspect page giving 500 error for unavailable servers.

8.1.0 (2022-05-16)

  • Added --version CLI option.

  • Changed redisboard CLI admin header to show version and also fixed incorrect context that prevented AdminSite customizations overriding said header. Probably view site link also fixed.

8.0.1 (2022-05-15)

  • Fixed incorrect settings loading of REDISBOARD_DETAIL_CONVERTERS.

8.0.0 (2022-05-15)

  • Dropped support for Python 3.6.

  • Overhauled internals to support customization of redis queries, deserialization and display using custom classes. For that purpose there are new settings: REDISBOARD_DECODER_CLASS, REDISBOARD_DISPLAY_CLASS, REDISBOARD_VALUE_QUERY_CLASS and REDISBOARD_LENGTH_QUERY_CLASS.

  • Fixed various issues with pagination by simplifying it and making the use of cursors transparent to the user. For this purpose the sampling_size and sampling_threshold models fields have been removed, and the REDISBOARD_ITEMS_PER_PAGE was removed and replaced with REDISBOARD_SCAN_COUNT and REDISBOARD_STRING_PAGINATION.

  • Added new setting REDISBOARD_DETAIL_CONVERTERS for customizing display of server details somewhat.

  • Added new setting REDISBOARD_SLOWLOG_NUM option for limiting the slowlow displayed.

  • The default value for the REDISBOARD_DETAIL_FILTERS setting was changed.

  • Better connection management was implemented, both via render callbacks and __del__ (as a fallback). There shouldn’t be any connection leaks anymore. If the DEBUG setting is True then warnings will be issued should any connection be closed via __del__.

  • Added the --debug (to enable DEBUG and autoreload) and --decoder (to load a different data decoder) in the redisboard CLI.

7.0.1 (2022-05-12)

  • Fixed --password killing the django session (it won’t change the password and invalidate session if it’s identical).

  • Fixed some alignment regressions in the table cells.

7.0.0 (2022-05-12)

  • Removed some of the more expensive and frankly pointless stats computations.

  • Fixed internal error that occurred for empty databases.

  • Cleaned up more code (hopefully all the Python 2 is all gone now).

  • Changed the inspect page to include all the stats from the changelist.

  • Changed the stats display to use tables instead of definition lists.

  • Changed the --password CLI option to update the password regardless if the local sqlite was created or not.

6.0.0 (2022-04-12)

  • Replaced the hostname/port fields with an url field. This allow SSL connection and whatever Redis will have in the future.

  • Removed more dead code.

5.0.0 (2022-01-27)

  • Drop support for old Python/Django. Minimum requirements are now Python 3.6 and Django 2.2.

  • Fixed various issues with newer Django (up to 4.0):

    • Fixed various deprecations and broken imports.

    • Added a default_auto_field - fixes Django complaining about missing migrations if you have a custom DEFAULT_AUTO_FIELD in settings.

4.1.1 (2020-07-28)

  • Improved exception handling for errors coming from redis. Now timeouts show the server as “DOWN” and other errors don’t result in a 500 page.

4.1.0 (2020-07-23)

  • Fixed a KeyError that could occur on fast changing databases. Contributed by Rand01ph in #39.

  • Added a port filter. Contributed by Rick van Hattem in #41.

  • Added support for Django 3. Contributed by Alireza Amouzadeh in #43.

  • Fixed issues that could occur when running the redisboard CLI with newer Django (migrations will run now).

  • Fixed ugettext deprecation.

  • Added a favicon.ico and handler in the redisboard CLI.

4.0.0 (2018-11-01)

  • Fixed typo in inspect.html template to reflect out.

  • Added Django 2.0 support. Contributed by Erik Telepovský in #33.

  • Converted the script to a redisboard bin and fixed Django 2.x issues.

  • Dropped support for Django older than 1.11.

  • Dropped support for Python older than 3.4 or 2.7.

  • Fixed issues with data being displayed as binary strings.

  • Fixed unwanted tag escaping. Contributed by Gilles Lavaux in #37.

3.0.2 (2017-01-19)

  • Fixed UnicodeDecodeError in “redisboard/” (fixes issue #15). Contributed by Erik Telepovský in #29.

  • Fixed TypeError in “redisboard/”. Contributed by gabn88 in #28.

3.0.1 (2016-09-12)

  • Add supportfor Django 1.10. Contributed by Vincenzo Demasi in #26.

3.0.0 (2015-12-17)

  • Drop support for Django < 1.8

  • Add support for Django 1.9. Contributed by gabn88 in #25.

2.0.0 (2015-11-08)

  • Fix error handling in couple places. Now pages don’t return 500 errors if there’s something bad going on with the redis connection.

  • Remove key stats that came from DEBUG OBJECT (LRU, Address, Length etc). Now OBJECT [REFCOUNT|ENCODING|IDLETIME] is used instead. BACKWARDS INCOMPATIBLE

1.2.2 (2015-10-11)

  • Exception handling for AWS ElastiCache Redis or any Redis that does not have DEBUG OBJECT command.

  • Enabled Redis keys to be inspected despite not having details from DEBUG OBJECT command.
