Memcached

Memcached is a widely used high-performance distributed caching
system designed to store and retrieve data in memory. It operates as a
cache server in the network, temporarily storing data in RAM to provide
fast responses and reduce the load on databases or other storage
systems. Memcached is designed to be simple and efficient, utilizing a
key-value model where data is identified by a unique key. It offers a
command-line interface and APIs to access and manipulate the cached
data.

With its horizontal scalability capability, Memcached can be
distributed across multiple servers to increase storage capacity and
handle high traffic demands. It is widely used in web applications,
especially in environments where speed and scalability are crucial, such
as e-commerce websites, social media platforms, and streaming services.

How to Monitor Memcached on the One Platform

To set up monitoring for Memcached on the platform, follow these steps:

  1. Go to the product application where you want to add Memcached as a dependency in the platform.

  2. Click on the “Products” menu and select the desired product card.

  3. Then, click on the name of the specific application where you want to configure Memcached monitoring.

  4. Look for the section called “External Dependencies,” usually located just below the latency graph of the application.

  5. To add an already registered dependency, type the name of the
    dependency in the search field and select it when it appears in the
    list.

  6. If Memcached is not yet registered as a dependency, click on the green button with a plus (+) symbol to add a new dependency.


 

Click “Add” and a modal will
appear allowing you to name the database and select the Environment. In
the “Check type” field, choose the option “DB,” and in the “Method”
field, select “Memcached.” After selecting the method, a field for the
Healthcheck URL will appear.


 

Below is an example of string for Memcached:

example: HOST:PORT

 

Note: For security reasons, it is not permitted to enter an IP in the
healthcheck field. To monitor an IP, you need to enter it in a secret
and use it in healthcheck
