mode - string, optional, default=”stats”

determines what kind of information is returned.

  • “stats” returns general statistics about memory usage in the daemon.

  • “mallocinfo” returns an XML string describing low-level heap state (only available if compiled with glibc 2.10+).

    "used" : n,           (numeric) Number of bytes used
    "free" : n,           (numeric) Number of bytes available in current arenas
    "total" : n,          (numeric) Total number of bytes managed
    "locked" : n,         (numeric) Amount of bytes that succeeded locking. If this number is smaller than total, locking pages failed at some point and key data could be swapped to disk.
