Memc Nginx Module

Yichun Zhang , 17 Oct 2013 (created 21 Jun 2011)

This module extends the standard memcached module to support almost the whole memcached ascii protocol.

It allows you to define a custom REST interface to your memcached servers or access memcached in a very efficient way from within the nginx server by means of subrequests or independent fake requests.

When used in conjunction with LuaNginxModule, it is recommended to use LuaRestyMemcachedLibrary instead of this one, since it is more flexible and more memory-efficient.
