To get the
items statistics, use the
stats items command, or the API equivalent.
items statistics give information about
the individual items allocated within a given slab class.

The prefix number against each statistics relates to the
corresponding chunk size, as returned by the
slabs statistics. The result is a display of the
number of items stored within each chunk within each slab size,
and specific statistics about their age, eviction counts, and
out of memory counts. A summary of the statistics is given in
the following table.
||The number of items currently stored in this slab class.|
||The age of the oldest item within the slab class, in seconds.|
||The number of items evicted to make way for new entries.|
||The time of the last evicted entry|
||The time of the last evicted non-zero entry||1.4.0|
||The number of items for this slab class that have triggered an out of
memory error (only value when the
||Number of times the entries for a particular ID need repairing|
Item level statistics can be used to determine how many items are stored within a given slab and their freshness and recycle rate. You can use this to help identify whether there are certain slab classes that are triggering a much larger number of evictions that others.
