Redis configuration and performance check

What is a good or practicable way with Matomo to:

  1. check if Matomo redis config is properly configured and working
  2. get an idea of Redis’ performance gain, like a quick benchmark

Any advise?

Happy New Year & thanks!


It depends on if you mean using Redis for queued tracking or for caching.
In both cases simply run redis-cli monitor and see if you see data stored and fetched.

In case of queued tracking the performance gain is more because of the fact that tracking now simply dumps the raw request into the queue. For caching you should quite immediately see that a lot of Matomo pages (especially setting pages) to load a bit faster.
