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.

Building

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.

Building Memcached

For example, assume you keep all of your projects in ~/prog/, you can do this:

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 git@github.com:membase/ep-engine.git
cd ep-engine
./config/autorun.sh
./configure --with-memcached=$HOME/prog/memcached
make

Running

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
Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
