Redis Manager

Latest Redis Manager Release Redis Manager GitHub Stars

Redis Manager Screenshot

This module was inspired by a client with a very unique Redis caching setup. The Redis ring operated on several servers using master-slaves. Because each web host had a different Redis cache, normal cache clearing didn't always behave as expected.

With this module, you can configure any number of Redis endpoints, view statistics of each database, and selectively flush DBs.
