Redis .rdb dump file analyzer in C
Currently, pianoman runs the same dump-check that Redis does, plus basic stats on key type breakdowns. You can also pass pianoman up to 25 "matchers," strings which are meant to match against the beginning of your redis keys. For example if your namespaces are broken down by "api," "app," "sessions," etc., you can run stats against each of these prefixes. A trivial example is below.
Here's a tiny redis database:
redis 127.0.0.1:6379> keys * 1) "wutangclan" 2) "wu" 3) "rza" 4) "odb" 5) "clan" 6) "tang"
Here's the current output, with some matchers:
> ./pm ~/Projects/redis/dump.rdb wu cla rz Data: Valid Ops: 8 Valid Bytes: 143 Key Space: Strings: 2 (33.33%) Lists: 1 (16.67%) Sets: 1 (16.67%) Zsets: 1 (16.67%) Hashes: 1 (16.67%) Total Keys: 6 Total Expires: 0 (0.0%) Match Stats: 0) wu 2.00 (33.33%) 1) cla 1.00 (16.67%) 2) rz 1.00 (16.67%)
Decent. Here's a timed output on a larger (629MB) db on my macbook:
~/Projects/pianoman[master*]: time ./pm ~/gooddump.rdb api dashboard Data: Valid Ops: 408117 Valid Bytes: 659980364 Key Space: Strings: 140810 (34.503%) Lists: 10365 (2.540%) Sets: 3261 (0.799%) Zsets: 1 (0.000%) Hashes: 253678 (62.158%) Total Keys: 408115 Total Expires: 71108 (17.424%) Match Stats: 0) api 253678 (62.158%) 1) dashboard 78297 (19.185%) real 0m9.109s user 0m8.264s sys 0m0.821s

- 'keys *' is not a safe command to run on a large production Redis data set.
- If your server is having problems, you hopefully have a copy of your .rdb file somewhere, and you might not want to spin up a server to see what's happening.
- You want to continuously measure qualities of your key space and don't always want to keep all of it in Redis itself.
There's no reason this code should damage your data set, but you should not run this on your live data. Please run it on a backup until it is tested extensively.
