Memcached is a distributed memory object caching system intended to speed up dynamic web applications. It provides an ideal platform for accelerating the performance of web applications in the cloud. ManageEngine Applications Manager's Memcached monitoring provides a comprehensive solution to proactively monitor the health and performance of business-critical Memcached servers. This allows IT administrators to identify and resolve problems with caching systems before they can have an adverse impact on the business.
Some of the Memcached metrics provided by Applications Manager include:
Get an overall picture of the current availability, health and cache hit ratio of the memcached server. By looking at the hit ratio, you can get clarity into the data retrieval efficiency from the cache memory. It also gives an overview into how many requests can be processed in contrast to the number of requests received. As a low cache hit ratio typically indicates poor caching configuration, data admins can use this information to identify the area of deficit and make necessary performance optimizations. In addition, avoid the problem of your memcached server running out of memory by getting notified whenever the memory usage is high.
Check if CPUs are running at full capacity or if they are being under utilized. Monitor Memcached memory to get instant alerts whenever there is a memory overload that can help prevent undesired data replacement. Applications Manager's Memcached monitoring tool also helps keep track of performance attributes such as transaction time, GET and SET request rates, user CPU and system CPU loads, cached hits/min, cached misses/min, number of retrieval and storage requests per minute.
Monitor Memcached network traffic metrics such as bytes received / sent per minute. Applications Manager tracks the current connection count that helps prevent overusage of memcached service by alerting whenever the limit is exceeded. Similarly, our Memcached performance monitoring capability also monitors the count of items cached, response time, evictions, and threads. Other performance metrics include transaction details, response time, number of open connections, items cached and evictions.
ManageEngine Applications Manager also provides out-of-the-box reports that help analyze the Memcached server availability and performance as well as help in capacity planning. In addition to monitoring Memcached servers, there is out-of-the-box support for monitoring databases, application servers and other enterprise applications making managing IT resources easier for the system administrator.
