Memory cache is implemented by org.apache.jcs.engine.LRUMemoryCache, and 
I think it is being used by Cocoon (as configured in default.ccf). 
Method of adding an entry looks like O(log(n)), with the exception of 
one statement:

    if ( map.size() != dumpCacheSize() )
      log.error( "update: After spool, size mismatch: map.size() = "
                 + map.size() + ", linked list size = " +
                 dumpCacheSize() );

Which forces linear scan of linked list. For large caches, this should 
be one of the reasons of slow performance. Another reason I can think of 
can be synchronization in the heavy-multithreaded environment.

Pier, you can also take a look at MRUMemoryStore / MRUBucketMap pair- it 
supposed to be faster replacement of excalibur's store.
