Subject Re: Storing contents of a file in a java object
Date Mon, 05 Oct 2009 08:42:56 GMT
I had run a big mapred job (160GB data) on a small cluster of 7 nodes. I had
started 15 Memcached server instances on 7 nodes and I noticed that a single
memcached server was processing 1 million requests per second (in my case),
however it was definitely 3-4 times slower than in-memory approach. I had to
increase the limit of open file descriptors for that.

Since memcached was not performing up to my expectations I used Tokyocabinet
( A file based database) and its performance was near to in-memory approach.
