    5.5 Summary

    All of the topics that we’ve covered in this chapter have directly or indirectly been
    written to support applications. These functions and decorators are meant to help you
    start using Redis as a way of supporting different parts of your application over time.
    Logging, counters, and statistics are there to offer direct insight into how your application
    is performing. IP-to-location lookup can tell you where your consumers are
    located. And storing service discovery and configuration can save a lot of effort
    because of not needing to manually handle connections.

    Now that we have a solid foundation for supporting applications in Redis, chapter
    6 will continue down this path to functions that can be used as building blocks of
    your application.
