= memcache-client

This is a fork of FiveRuns fork of seattle.rb's memcache-client. It adds gzip compression to avoid memcached 1MB cache size limit.

Rubyforge Project:

http://rubyforge.org/projects/seattlerb

Documentation:

http://seattlerb.org/memcache-client

== Installing memcache-client

Just install the gem:

  $ sudo gem install dbackeus-memcache-client --source http://gems.github.com

== Using memcache-client

With one server:

  CACHE = MemCache.new 'localhost:11211', :namespace => 'my_namespace'

Or with multiple servers:

  CACHE = MemCache.new %w[one.example.com:11211 two.example.com:11211],
                       :namespace => 'my_namespace'

See MemCache.new for details.

=== Using memcache-client with Rails

Rails will automatically load the memcache-client gem, but you may
need to uninstall Ruby-memcache, I don't know which one will get
picked by default.

Add your environment-specific caches to config/environment/*.  If you run both
development and production on the same memcached server sets, be sure
to use different namespaces.  Be careful when running tests using
memcache, you may get strange results.  It will be less of a headache
to simply use a readonly memcache when testing.

memcache-client also comes with a wrapper called Cache in memcache_util.rb for
use with Rails.  To use it be sure to assign your memcache connection to
CACHE.  Cache returns nil on all memcache errors so you don't have to rescue
the errors yourself.  It has #get, #put and #delete module functions.

=== Improving Performance ===

Performing the CRC-32 ITU-T step to determine which server to use for a given key
is VERY slow in Ruby.  RubyGems should compile a native library for performing this
operation when the gem is installed.
Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
