Supported Puppet versions

  • Puppet >= 4
  • Last version supporting Puppet 3: v3.0.2

How to use

Starting with version 3.0.0, memcached will be listening on 127.0.0.1 only.
This should make setups more secure (e.g. if there are no firewall rules in place).

To change this behavior, you need to set listen_ip to '0.0.0.0'.

Use roughly 90% of memory

    class { 'memcached': }

Set a fixed memory limit in MB

    class { 'memcached':
      max_memory => 2048
    }

Use 12% of available memory

    class { 'memcached':
      max_memory => '12%'
    }

Other class parameters

  • $package_ensure = 'present'
  • $logfile = '/var/log/memcached.log'
  • $logstdout = false (Set this to true to disable logging to a file/syslog entirely, useful when memcached runs in containers)
  • $pidfile = '/var/run/memcached.pid' (Debian family only, set to false to disable pidfile)
  • $max_memory = false
  • $max_item_size = false
  • $min_item_size = false
  • $factor = false
  • $lock_memory = false (WARNING: good if used intelligently, google for -k key)
  • $listen_ip = '127.0.0.1'
  • $tcp_port = 11211
  • $udp_port = 11211
  • $manage_firewall = false
  • $user = '' (OS specific setting, see params.pp)
  • $max_connections = 8192
  • $verbosity = undef
  • $unix_socket = undef
  • $install_dev = false (TRUE if 'libmemcached-dev' package should be installed)
  • $processorcount = $::processorcount
  • $service_restart = true (restart service after configuration changes, false to prevent restarts)
  • $use_sasl = false (start memcached with SASL support)
  • $large_mem_pages = false (try to use large memory pages)
