memcached

At work today, I started playing with memcached in an effort to improve the performance of several PHP based web apps that I maintain. Using this simple, yet excellent tutorial, I converted over one of the app (a graph showing cumulative automated test counts over time) to use memcached in less than an hour. More importantly, with memcached page load time was reduced by over 80%, from about 1.7 seconds to 0.31 seconds. Granted today’s was the most simple apps, but even if I can obtain a 25% reduction, I’d be quite pleased.
