This is an official repository for pecl-memcache plugin since 2019.

This repository contains modified pecl-memcache plugin ported to PHP8, which was originally developed for the need of hosting company in Slovakia (Websupport.sk).

The latest release is 8.0 (released: 2020-12-06) with support for PHP 8.0.

Please use version 4.0.5.1 (released: 2020-12-19) for PHP 7.x from branch NON_BLOCKING_IO_php7.

See: https://github.com/websupport-sk/pecl-memcache/releases See also release on PECL: https://pecl.php.net/package/memcache

Feel free to use it and post patches.

Original README:

memcached module for PHP

This module requires zlib library, used for on-the-fly data (de)compression. Also, you'll need memcached to use it =)

The memcached website is here: http://www.danga.com/memcached/

You will probably need libevent to install memcached: You can download it here: http://www.monkey.org/~provos/libevent/

How to run tests:

  1. sh tests/memcache.sh
  2. TEST_PHP_EXECUTABLE=/usr/local/bin/php php -dextension=modules/memcache.so run-tests.php -d extension=modules/memcache.so

New API in 3.0

Version 3 introduces a new class "MemcachePool" which implements the new API, the old class "Memcache" is still retained (but is deprecated) with the same interface for backwards compatibility. Please note that you need a new memcached version to use the CAS, default value to increment/decrement, append and prepend, and binary protocol features.

New INI directives are available to allow control over protocol, redundancy and hash strategy selection. These are

# The binary protocol results in less traffic and is more efficient
# for the client and server to generate/parse

memcache.protocol = {ascii, binary}		# default ascii

# When enabled the client sends requests to N servers in parallel, resulting in
# a somewhat crude reduncancy or mirroring, suitable when used as a session 
# storage. 
#
# If data integrity is of greater importance a real replicating memcached 
# backend such as "repcached" (http://sourceforge.net/projects/repcached/) is 
# recommended

memcache.redundancy = <int>			# default 1
memcache.session_redundancy = <int>		# default 2

# Hash strategy and function selection. The consistent hashing strategy
# is now the default as it allows servers to be added and removed from
# the pool without resulting in all or most keys being re-mapped to 
# other server (ie. voiding the cache)

memcache.hash_strategy = {standard, consistent}	# default consistent
memcache.hash_function = {crc32, fnv}			# default crc32

# Compression is enabled by default, the threshold which control the minimum 
# string length which triggers compresssion can be changed as

memcache.compress_threshold = <int>		# default 20000

The directives are used by the MemcachePool constructor so you can instantiate several pools with different settings by using ini_set() creativly. For example

ini_set('memcache.protocol', 'binary');

$binarypool = new MemcachePool();
$binarypool->addServer(...)

ini_set('memcache.protocol', 'ascii');
ini_set('memcache.redundancy', '2');

$redundantpool = new MemcachePool();
$redundantpool->addServer(...)

ini_set('memcache.redundancy', '1');

The new interface looks like

class MemcachePool() { bool connect(string host, int tcp_port = 11211, int udp_port = 0, bool persistent = true, int weight = 1, int timeout = 1, int retry_interval = 15) bool addServer(string host, int tcp_port = 11211, int udp_port = 0, bool persistent = true, int weight = 1, int timeout = 1, int retry_interval = 15, bool status = true) bool setServerParams(string host, int tcp_port = 11211, int timeout = 1, int retry_interval = 15, bool status = true)

mixed get(mixed key, mixed &flags = null, mixed &cas = null)

/**

 */
bool add(mixed key, mixed var = null, int flag = 0, int exptime = 0)
bool set(mixed key, mixed var = null, int flag = 0, int exptime = 0)
bool replace(mixed key, mixed var = null, int flag = 0, int exptime = 0)

/**
 * Compare-and-Swap, uses the CAS param from MemcachePool::get() 
 */
bool cas(mixed key, mixed var = null, int flag = 0, int exptime = 0, int cas = 0)

/**

 */
bool append(mixed key, mixed var = null, int flag = 0, int exptime = 0)
bool prepend(mixed key, mixed var = null, int flag = 0, int exptime = 0)

/**
 * Supports multi-key operations, for example
 *  $memcache->delete(array('key1', 'key2'))
 */
bool delete(mixed key, int exptime = 0)

/**
 * Supports multi-key operations, for example
 *  $memcache->increment(array('key1', 'key2'), 1, 0, 0)
 *
 * The new defval (default value) and exptime (expiration time) are used
 * if the key doesn't already exist. They must be supplied (even if 0) for
 * this to be enabled.
 *
 * Returns an integer with the new value if key is a string
 * Returns an array of integers if the key is an array
 */
mixed increment(mixed key, int value = 1, int defval = 0, int exptime = 0)
mixed decrement(mixed key, int value = 1, int defval = 0, int exptime = 0)

 * a request fails. May be null in order to disable callbacks. The callback
 * receive arguments like
 *
 *  function mycallback($host, $tcp_port, $udp_port, $error, $errnum)
 *
 * Where $host and $error are strings or null, the other params are integers.
 */
bool setFailureCallback(function callback)

/**
 * Locates the server a given would be hashed to
 * 
 * Returns a string "hostname:port" on success
 * Returns false on failure such as invalid key
 */
string findServer(string key)
