I spoke with Brian Aker last week about the issues I found with decrement and increment while working on my book "Developing Web Applications with Apache, MySQL, Memcached, and Perl". He suggested I make sure that I was using the latest libmemcached. I checked, and the version of libmemcached that is included with Memcached::libmemcached is 0.21 - this is the version of Memcached::libmemcached I obtained from using CPAN (perhaps CPAN needs a new bundle...). So, I obtained the most recent version of Memcached::libmemcached from the subversion repository at https://perl-libmemcached.googlecode.com/svn, and it includes the lastest libmemcached, version 0.25. To make a long story short, I re-wrote my test script to test each operation individualy and time that, as well as compare the times to Cache::Memcached. The numbers are great and are reason enough [Read more...]
I'm busy working on my book, "Developing Web Applications with Apache, MySQL, Memcached, and Perl", writing about how Libmemcached (particularly the perl interface to libmemcached, Cache::Memcached::libmemcached/Memcached::libmemcached) is faster. And it is, except when I was writing a test script to compare, I first used Daisuke Maki's script that comes with Cache::Memcached::libmemcached, tools/benchmark.pl (which I modified to only compare Cache::Memcached to Cache::Memcached::libmemcached)
