Memcached is one of the world's largest key-value deployments. This article analyzes the Memcached workload at Facebook, looking at server-side performance, request composition, caching efficacy, and key locality. The observations presented here lead to several design insights and new research directions for key-value caches, such as the relative inadequacy of the least recently used (LRU) replacement policy.
