With a new post hitting Hacker News again on MySQL’s memcached plugin, I really wanted to do a quick-and-dirty benchmark on it, just to see what good it is – does this interface offer any extra speed when compared to SQL+ActiveRecord? Does it have it’s place in the software stack? How much work is needed to get this combination off the ground?
When running into micro-benchmarks, I really try my best to figure out if they hide any value. But it’s hard to find any in one that uses different libraries, runs both the benchmark and the server on the same machine and uses no concurrency.
