RedisInsight Profiler runs Redis
MONITOR command, which analyzes every command sent to the redis instance. It parses the output of the MONITOR command and generates a summarized view. All the commands sent to the redis instance are monitored for the duration of the profiling.
Profiler gives information about the number of commands processed, commands/second and number of connected clients. It also gives information about top prefixes, top keys and top commands.
Start profiling - Starts the profiling.
Stop Profiling - Stops the profiler i.e. the monitor command.
Running monitor command is dangerous to the performance of your production server, hence the profiler is run for a maximum time of 5 minutes, if the user has not stopped it in between. This is to avoid overload on the server.
