Memcached best practices and internals
Yesterday, igvita.com published a short article summarizing memcached internals and best practices. It was originally a talk by Brian Aker and Alan Kasindorf and their slides are included. It's a good read and digs into memcached's memory management and expiration logic. (Thanks for the heads up, chenb).
I noticed their first best practice for memcached, "Don't think row-level (database) caching, think complex objects, " is in opposition with what we're doing on AMO. After stuff like bug 425315 I completely agree with them.
