What is Memcached?
Memcached is an open source, high-performance distributed memory object caching system. Though generic in nature, Memcached is designed to speed up dynamic web applications by alleviating database load. Memcached is an in-memory key-value store for small chunks of data (for example, strings and objects) that are utilized in database calls, API calls, and page renderings.
We’re intrigued by its capability to work almost out of the box as well as being able to monitor system aspects as well as application performance and user experience.Sofico
Optimize Memcached performance with specific metrics
Dynatrace Memcached monitoring provides insights into your distributed memory-object caching system, delivering the metrics you need to see:
- Cache usage
- Number of connections
- Hits and misses
- ...and more
System performance metrics (CPU, memory, and more) are available on the System performance tab. See the full list of Memcached metrics.
Artificial intelligence accelerates problem resolution
Dynatrace provides full stack web-application monitoring down to the host level. Problems are identified using Dynatrace artificial intelligence.
Dynatrace smartscape technology visualizes all the dependencies between your applications, services, processes, and more.
