  Introducing Cache::Memcached::LibMemcached on 2008.01.15 18:25 lestrrat

Last weekend, in seeing a blog post (note, it's in Japanese), I realized that while there is a version being developed by Tim Bunce, nobody had written a Cache::Memcached compatible interface to libmemcached.

Ah well there is one now. It's now available on CPAN

I'm really glad I wrote it, libmemcached is blazing fast!

Here's the output of running the benchmark included with the distro on my laptop:

Of course, there are some loose ends. First, there's that last benchmark entry (set w/compression) where Cache::Memcached::Fast is faster than libmemcached. I haven't really looked into it. Also, I haven't implemented stat() and the various libmemcached-specific stuff like consistent hashing, mostly because I've run out of tuits for now.
