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
can do this:
cd ~/prog git clone -b engine git://github.com/northscale/memcached.git cd memcached git checkout engine ./config/autorun.sh ./configure make
cd ~/prog git clone email@example.com:northscale/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
