Django Cache Debug Toolbar for Redis, Memcache and PyLibMC

The Cache Debug Toolbar is an add-on for Django Debug Toolbar for tracking cache usage. It currently supports the redis, pylibmc and memcache libraries.

This is definitely beta software, but I’ve found it useful in work and personal projects. Feedback welcome, patches appreciated. - Ross McFarland


  1. Install and configure Django Debug Toolbar.

  2. Add the cache_toolbar app to your INSTALLED_APPS.

  3. Import the panel corresponding to the library you’re using.

    The following must be imported in your file so that it has a chance to replace the caching library with one capable of tracking. You’ll probably want to import it in (if you use the pattern) or at least wrap the import line in if DEBUG:

    For redis:

    import cache_toolbar.panels.redis

    For memcache:

    import cache_toolbar.panels.memcache

    For pylibmc:

    import cache_toolbar.panels.pylibmc


  1. Add the cache panel to DEBUG_TOOLBAR_PANELS.

    You’ll need to add the panel corresponding to the library you’ll be using to the list of debug toolbar’s panels in the order in which you’d like it to appear:
