The Memcached services installation includes a Memcached monitoring function called Memcached Monitor. Memcached Monitor periodically logs Memcached statistics and displays them in a useful representation.

An example is included for reference.

Important Notes

  • The default log folder is /var/log/memcached-monitor/.
  • The default log format is memcached-{mm-dd-yyyy}.log.
  • The default logging interval (period) is 60 seconds.
  • This service is turned on by default with Memcached.
  • You can interact with this service using: service memcached-monitor start/stop/restart/status.
