= LibmemcachedStore An ActiveSupport cache store that uses the C-based libmemcached client through Evan Weaver's Ruby/SWIG wrapper, memcached. libmemcached is fast, lightweight, and supports consistent hashing, non-blocking IO, and graceful server failover. == Prerequisites You'll need both the libmemcached client and the memcached gem: * http://tangent.org/552/libmemcached.html * http://blog.evanweaver.com/files/doc/fauna/memcached Make sure you install libmemcached first, before you try installing the gem. If you're using OS X, the easiest way to install libmemcached is through MacPorts: sudo port install libmemcached For other platforms, download and extract the libmemcached tarball and install manually: ./configure make && sudo make install Once libmemcached is installed, install the memcached gem: gem install memcached --no-rdoc --no-ri == Usage This is a drop-in replacement for the memcache store that ships with Rails. To enable, set the <tt>config.cache_store</tt> option to <tt>:libmemcached_store</tt> in the config for your environment config.cache_store = :libmemcached_store If no servers are specified, localhost is assumed. You can specify a list of server addresses, either as hostnames or IP addresses, with or without a port designation. If no port is given, 11211 is assumed: config.cache_store = :libmemcached_store, %w(cache-01 cache-02 127.0.0.1:11212) == Props Thanks to Brian Aker (http://tangent.org) for creating libmemcached, and Evan Weaver (http://blog.evanweaver.com) for the Ruby wrapper.
