ElastiCache Memcached Summary
This table displays information about the memcached performance of the AWS ElastiCache service.
Column
Description
Unused Memory
The amount of unused memory the cache can use to store items. This is derived from the memcached statistics limit_maxbytes and bytes by subtracting bytes from limit_maxbytes.
Memcached Hit Requests
The number of get requests the cache has received where the key requested was found.
Memcached Miss Requests
The number of get requests the cache has received where the key requested was not found.
Current Connections
The number of connections connected to the cache at an instant in time.
Evictions
The number of non-expired items the cache evicted to allow space for new writes.
ElastiCache Redis Summary
This table displays information about the redis performance of the AWS ElastiCache service.
Column
Description
Current Connections
The number of client connections, excluding connections from read replicas.
Evictions
The number of keys that have been evicted due to the maximum memory limit.
ElastiCache Host Summary
This table displays information about the CPU and memory performance of the AWS ElastiCache service.
Column
Description
CPU Utilization
The percentage of CPU utilization.
Swap Usage
The amount of swap used on the host.
