I am setting a hit ratio of 55% on our memcache instance (v1.4.4) and am wondering what can be done to improve the hit ratio. We're in a multisite setup (30+ sites), with two load balanced web servers; there is an instance of memcached on each web server.
settings.php, I have:
$conf['memcache_servers'] = array( '126.96.36.199:11211' => 'default', '188.8.131.52:11211' => 'default', ); $conf['memcache_bins'] = array('cache' => 'default'); $conf['memcache_key_prefix'] = $_SERVER['SERVER_NAME'];
I am looking at using bins to improve hit ratio, but have come across some suggestions that the latest memcache module does this already, but I am unsure as the instructions with the module contain directions on setting up bins.
If bins are they way to go, how do you determine what (table?) needs to have its own bin? These are the cache tables that I have in my sites:
cache cache_admin_menu (empty) cache_block (empty) cache_bootstrap cache_field cache_filter (empty) cache_form (empty) cache_image (empty) cache_media_xml (empty) cache_menu cache_page (empty) cache_path (empty) cache_token (empty) cache_update (empty) cache_views cache_views_data (empty) ctools_css_cache (empty) ctools_object_cache (empty)
In addition to bins, what else can I be doing to improve memcached usage?
