I'm deploying a system with memcached and mysql cluster. The command line is:

memcached -E lib/ -e "connectstring=maddy:1186;role=dev"

I can't specify the -m argument since I used -E and -e.

My questions are:

  1. Is the maximum memory 64M? If so, how can I change it? Any solution for about 1G-2G memory requirement?
  2. Are there any more stable versions than memcached-1.6.0_beta1.tar.gz?

84M? Is this 1995 or 2012? :) – Phil Dec 1 '12 at 1:21
