How can I download a dump (.rdb) from my Heroku Redis addon?

Issue

You need to download a dump of your Redis data to analyze usage or perform a backup.

Resolution

We don't currently offer the facility to download rdb dumps (https://devcenter.heroku.com/articles/heroku-redis#backups-persistence). For analysis another option is to try forking the Redis addon. You can find an example of the command for this here: https://devcenter.heroku.com/articles/heroku-redis#migrating-to-heroku-redis

With the fork in place this should allow you to use third party analysis tools without affecting the production instance.
