Chapter 1. Admin Guide

1.1. Overview

This module is an implementation of a cache system designed to work with a memcached server. It uses libmemcached client library to connect to several memcached servers that store data. It uses the Key-Value interface exported from the core.

1.2. Advantages

  • memory costs are no longer on the server

  • many servers may be used so the memory is virtually unlimited

  • the cache is persistent so a restart of the server will not affect the cache

  • memcached is an open-source project so it can be used to exchange data with various other applications

  • servers may be grouped together (e.g. for security purposes : some can be inside a private network, some can be in a public one)

1.3. Limitations

  • keys (in key:value pairs) may not contain spaces or control characters

1.4. Dependencies

1.4.1. OpenSIPS Modules


1.4.2. External Libraries or Applications

The following libraries or applications must be installed before running OpenSIPS with this module loaded:

  • libmemcached:

    libmemcached can be downloaded from: Download the archive, extract sources, run ./configure, make,sudo make install.

    tar -xzvf libmemcached-0.31.tar.gz
    cd libmemcached-0.31
    sudo make install

1.5. Exported Parameters

1.5.1. cachedb_url (string)

The urls of the server groups that OpenSIPS will connect to in order to use the from script cache_store,cache_fetch, etc operations. It can be set more than one time. The prefix part of the URL will be the identifier that will be used from the script.

Example 1.1. Set cachedb_url parameter

modparam("cachedb_memcached", "cachedb_url","memcached:group1://localhost:9999,");
modparam("cachedb_memcached", "cachedb_url","memcached:y://random_url:8888/");

Example 1.2. Use memcached servers

cache_store("memcached:group1","key","$ru value");

1.5.2. exec_threshold (int)

The maximum number of microseconds that a local cache query can last. Anything above the threshold will trigger a warning message to the log

Default value is 0 ( unlimited - no warnings ).

Example 1.3. Set exec_threshold parameter

modparam("cachedb_memcached", "exec_threshold", 100000)

1.5.3. Exported Functions

The module does not export functions to be used in configuration script.

(1) DevScore = author_commits + author_lines_added / (project_lines_added / project_commits) + author_lines_deleted / (project_lines_deleted / project_commits)

(2) including any documentation-related commits, excluding merge commits. Regarding imported patches/code, we do our best to count the work on behalf of the proper owner, as per the "fix_authors" and "mod_renames" arrays in opensips/doc/ If you identify any patches/commits which do not get properly attributed to you, please submit a pull request which extends "fix_authors" and/or "mod_renames".

(3) ignoring whitespace edits, renamed files and auto-generated files
