memcached 1.6.19


Memcached is a high-performance distributed in-memory caching system designed to accelerate dynamic web applications by reducing database load. It is a popular open-source solution for caching frequently accessed data in RAM, providing faster access times than disk-based databases. Memcached is used by some of the biggest websites on the internet to improve their performance, including Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube. With its simple and efficient design, Memcached makes it easy to scale applications to handle increasing amounts of traffic.

  • Fast in-memory data storage and retrieval: Memcached stores data in memory, enabling fast access and retrieval of data.
  • Distributed architecture: Memcached can be used in a distributed setup, where multiple Memcached servers work together to store and retrieve data, improving performance and scalability.
  • Key-value storage: Memcached uses a simple key-value storage interface that allows clients to store and retrieve data using keys.
  • Flexible memory management: Memcached allows you to specify the amount of memory used for caching and also has automatic memory management features.
  • Multi-protocol support: Memcached supports multiple protocols, including ASCII, binary, and UDP.

  • Caching frequently accessed data: Memcached can be used to cache frequently accessed data, such as website content, session data, and database query results. This can improve the performance of web applications by reducing the number of database queries.
  • Distributed caching: Memcached can be used in a distributed setup to improve the performance and scalability of web applications. In a distributed setup, multiple Memcached servers work together to store and retrieve data.

  1. Install Memcached on your server.
  2. Configure Memcached based on your requirements.
  3. Write code to use the Memcached client library to store and retrieve data.
  4. Monitor Memcached performance to ensure optimal performance.

  • Memcached is written in C.
  • It is designed to be lightweight and efficient.
  • Memcached supports multiple storage engines, including memory, disk, and SQLite.
  • It provides an API for client libraries to interact with the server.
  • Memcached can be used with a variety of programming languages, including PHP, Python, Ruby, and Java.
