How to use the Memcached Add-in
This documentation set has been merged with the Maestro Version 2 documentation and is officially deprecated. These pages will be redirected to their equivalents in that doc set within the next few weeks.
Memcached is an open source, high-performance, distributed memory object caching system, and it’s easy to add to your stack as an add-in.
To add Memcached to your stack, access the add-ins menu, click Memcached and confirm the installation. This will install Memcache on your servers for use with your application - you just need to ensure that your app is configured accordingly.
To customize Memcached, use the below syntax in your manifest file and redeploy the stack with
Apply security upgrades option.
production: memcached: shared_group: db configuration: memory: 1024 port: 11215 listen_ip: 127.0.0.1
For docker stacks this will be added to the host not as a container.
You can find the details about Memcached under your
Settings & Information,
Information tab. Since having Memcached as a separate server will not improve performance, Cloud66 will install it on each web server, not as a standalone server.
