Defined in:
activesupport/lib/active_support/cache/mem_cache_store.rb

Overview

A cache store implementation which stores data in Memcached: www.danga.com/memcached/

This is currently the most popular cache store for production websites.

Special features:

  • Clustering and load balancing. One can specify multiple memcached servers, and MemCacheStore will load balance between all available servers. If a server goes down, then MemCacheStore will ignore it until it comes back up.

MemCacheStore implements the Strategy::LocalCache strategy which implements an in memory cache inside of a block.

Constructor Details

#initialize(*addresses) ⇒ MemCacheStore

Creates a new MemCacheStore object, with the given memcached server addresses. Each address is either a host name, or a host-with-port string in the form of “host_name:port”. For example:

ActiveSupport::Cache::MemCacheStore.new("localhost", "server-downstairs.localnetwork:8229")

If no addresses are specified, then MemCacheStore will connect to localhost port 11211 (the default memcached port).

Instead of addresses one can pass in a MemCache-like object. For example:

require 'memcached' # gem install memcached; uses C bindings to libmemcached
ActiveSupport::Cache::MemCacheStore.new(Memcached::Rails.new("localhost:11211"))

Instance Method Details

#clear(options = nil) ⇒ Object

Clear the entire cache on all memcached servers. This method should be used with care when shared cache is being used.

def clear(options = nil)
  @data.flush_all
end

#decrement(name, amount = 1, options = nil) ⇒ Object

Decrement a cached value. This method uses the memcached decr atomic operator and can only be used on values written with the :raw option. Calling it on a value not stored with :raw will initialize that value to zero.

    @data.decr(escape_key(namespaced_key(name, options)), amount)
  end
  response == Response::NOT_FOUND ? nil : response.to_i
rescue MemCache::MemCacheError
  nil
end

#increment(name, amount = 1, options = nil) ⇒ Object

Increment a cached value. This method uses the memcached incr atomic operator and can only be used on values written with the :raw option. Calling it on a value not stored with :raw will initialize that value to zero.

  end
  response == Response::NOT_FOUND ? nil : response.to_i
rescue MemCache::MemCacheError
  nil
end

#read_multi(*names) ⇒ Object

Reads multiple values from the cache using a single call to the servers for all keys. Options can be passed in the last argument.
