memcached

This Puppet module provides classes for managing Memcached and related packages.

Classes

memcached

By default, inclusion of this class installs memcached and enables its service:

include memcached

Further customization may be done via class parameters, for example to purge the package, set the ensure parameter to absent:

class { 'memcached':
  ensure => 'absent',
}

To prevent the memcached service from starting on boot, set the service_enable parameter to false:

class { 'memcached':
  service_enable => false,
}

memcached::config

By default, the memcached class does not modify the configuration file used by Linux platforms. Customizations of this file are done with the memcached::config class. For example, to allow connections from beyond the localhost you'd set the listen parameter:

class { 'memcached::config':
  listen => '0.0.0.0',
}

To change the maximum amount of memory used by memcached to one gigabyte (1024 megabytes), you'd set the cachesize parameter:

class { 'memcached::maxsize':
  cachesize => 1024,
}

The full list of configuration parameters, which correspond to directly to the memcached command-line options, are:

  • port
  • user
  • cachesize
  • maxconn
  • listen
  • logfile
  • maxsize

memcached::devel

Installs the memcached development headers package for the platform.

memcached::iptables

Sets up a firewall rule allowing external access to the Memcached instance -- use of this class requires the puppetlabs-firewall module and configuring the listen parameter in memcached::config.

memcached::lib

Installs the libMemcached library package.

memcached::lib::devel

Installs the libMemcached development headers package.

memcached::python

Installs the system package for python-memcached.
