Gets memory-related statistics.


Request syntax:

cbstats [host]:11210 memory


This command provides various memory-related statistics including the ones from tcmalloc.

Note: tcmalloc stats are not available on operating systems (such as Windows) that do not support tcmalloc.
Stat Description
mem_used (deprecated) Engine’s total memory usage
bytes Engine’s total memory usage
ep_kv_size Memory used to store item metadata, keys and values, no matter the vbucket’s state. If an item’s value is ejected, this stat will be decremented by the size of the item’s value.
ep_value_size Memory used to store values for resident keys.
ep_overhead Extra memory used by transient data like persistence queue, replication queues, checkpoints, etc.
ep_max_size Max amount of data allowed in memory
ep_mem_low_wat Low water mark for auto-evictions
ep_mem_high_wat High water mark for auto-evictions
ep_oom_errors Number of times unrecoverable OOMs that happened while processing operations,
ep_tmp_oom_errors Number of times temporary OOMs that happened while processing operations.
ep_mem_tracker_enabled If smart memory tracking is enabled
tcmalloc_allocated_bytes Engine’s total memory usage reported from tcmalloc.
tcmalloc_heap_size Bytes of system memory reserved by tcmalloc.
tcmalloc_free_bytes Number of bytes in free, mapped pages in page heap.
tcmalloc_unmapped_bytes Number of bytes in free, unmapped pages in page heap. These are bytes that have been released back to OS.
tcmalloc_max_thread_cache_bytes A limit to how much memory TCMalloc dedicates for small objects.
tcmalloc_current_thread_cache_bytes A measure of some of the memory TCMalloc is using for small objects.
total_allocated_bytes Engine’s total memory usage.
total_fragmentation_bytes Number of fragmentation bytes.
total_free_mapped_bytes Number of bytes in free, mapped pages.
total_free_unmapped_bytes Number of bytes in free, unmapped pages.
total_heap_bytes Number of of bytes in a heap.
