The membase engine
This is the membase engine. Initially, somewhat jokingly, it was called the "eventually persistent" engine. The name stuck, we think mostly because it's easy to say.
You will need a storage-engine capable memcached and its included headers.
The easiest way to do this if you don't want to install memcached from source would be to just create a source tree and reference it.
For example, assume you keep all of your projects in
~/prog/, you can do
cd ~/prog git clone -b engine git://github.com/membase/memcached.git cd memcached git checkout engine ./config/autorun.sh ./configure make
Building the Eventually Persistent Engine
cd ~/prog git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:membase/ep-engine.git cd ep-engine ./config/autorun.sh ./configure --with-memcached=$HOME/prog/memcached make
An example invocation using the ep engine from your dev tree and
keeping the database in
/tmp/ep.db looks like this:
~/prog/memcached/memcached -v -E ~/prog/ep-engine/.libs/ep.so \ -e dbname=/tmp/ep.db
