Super fast totally awesome distributed memory object caching daemon. Requires a client to fully utilize, which you may research at the wiki: http://www.memcached.org/wiki The ASCII protocol is documented in doc/protocol.txt - the newer binary protocol is documented on the wiki above. Dependencies: -- libevent, http://www.monkey.org/~provos/libevent/ (libevent-dev) Ideally you have a recent version of libevent (1.4+), and a recent OS (at least from the last 4 years). QUICK INSTALL: $ ./configure && make && make test && sudo make install By default memcached builds with a bundled version of libevent, to make it easier to build on older distributions. If you are packaging memcached or otherwise wish to use the libevent provided by your distro, build with: $ ./configure --disable-bundled-libevent Please try to ensure memcached isn't swapping. It is designed to be ultra fast while relying on RAM. SWAP is not necessarily RAM. The memcached website is at: http://www.memcached.org Want to contribute?
