Monitor Memcached Nodes

Granular metrics and dashboards for real-time monitoring of your web applications
How memory caches affect application performance can be difficult to grasp

Monitor Memcached for availability and performance

  • Simple setup

    Our UI will guide you through the steps you need to get up and running typically in minutes.

  • Customizable dashboard

    AppOptics™ makes analyzing Memcached performance a breeze with customizable dashboards and alerts.

  • Visibility into executed commands

    Understand which Memcached commands are producing your cached objects with Memcache-specific metrics.

  • Track hit ratio over time

    If your hit rate is too low, it could be due to issues in configuration, memory usage, etc.

Simple setup

Simple setup

Memcached monitoring can be easier than pronouncing it.

Getting started with it is as simple as enabling the Memcache community plugin and following the short configuration instructions. Typically within minutes, your Memcached clients and servers will be reporting their metrics to AppOptics.

By making use of the Memcached stats interface, AppOptics provides you with turnkey integration that will have metrics flowing typically in minutes.

Customizable dashboard

Customizable dashboard

AppOptics captures metrics to create custom dashboards that will allow you to quickly understand Memcached performance. Whether the Memcache hit rate has suddenly dropped to single digits, key evictions are elevated to abnormal levels, or you’re simply running out of free disk space, you’ll stay on top of the situation with our elegant visualizations for Memcached monitoring.

Visibility into executed commands

Visibility into executed commands

Visualize which commands are responsible for the pages in your Memcached slabs.

  • Cumulative number of retrieval requests (get operations)
  • Cumulative number of storage requests (set operations)
  • Metrics on authentication, flush, and touch commands

Stay on top of these and many other key Memcached performance metrics, allowing faster response time to problems and increased visibility for tuning your Memcached nodes.

Track hit ratio over time

Track hit ratio over time

The hit rate is one of the most important indicators of Memcached performance. A high hit rate means faster responses to your users. If the hit rate is falling, you need quick visibility into why. AppOptics lets you track misses, passes for objects that can’t be cached, eviction rate, purges, bans, and more.
