If you need to log unique views in Laravel, you might reach for a database table to track IP addresses or another unique piece of data. Let's take a look at speeding things up both in performance and complexity by using Redis and the HyperLogLog probabilistic data structure. Once we're done, we'll set up a period command to sync views back to the database for easy ordering, and then create a trait to share functionality between other models.
