Monitoring Memcached with New Relic Infrastructure

Memcached is a free and open-source distributed memory caching system. It can reduce the number of calls to (slow) external databases or APIs and speed up the performance of dynamic web applications.

Our Memcached integration collects and sends inventory and metrics from your Memcached instance to the New Relic platform, where you can aggregate and visualize key performance metrics. Data is collected on both the instance and slab levels.

What you can monitor with our Memcached integration

Hit and miss rates

It's crucial that you're caching the right data. Be sure to track your hit and miss rates.





Slab metrics

Understand how many items are in HOT, WARM & COLD and how evictions are impacting performance.

You need to know what’s happening in your Memcached

Memcached is meant to speed up your web applications. Are you sure Memcached is performing as expected? Make sure you have the right monitoring in place.

View Memcached metrics in our pre-built dashboards

Visualize all your data, easily filter to a specific host, and correlate with other performance metrics.


Default memecache dashboards

Track all Memcached configuration changes

Understand configuration differences across your stack and quantify how configuration changes impact performance.

General Inventory Example

Know immediately when performance is degrading

You can set up and receive alerts for any of the metrics captured, so you can easily stay on top of your Memcached performance.
