Using Memcache client

Some some simple/[stupid|smart] questions about memcache.

I am using the wrapper written by Eric H…

  1. Is it thread safe? By that I mean…lets say, I have one thread
    that writes to it and the other reads from it. How will it behave
    then. Please note that, only one thread will be used to write to
    it…rest all will just read. I see…mutex.synchronize in the code…so
    should be theoretically thread safe.

  2. I start a program, connect to the server using MemCache.new on a
    new namespace and do some data manipulation. Then i don’t need to
    close the connection, right? Do i need to delete the keys that i put?
    or they will expire.

Here…I am using it outside rails domain.

Some of the documentation lies, but, see: ri MemCache.new

Don’t worry about it, memcached will take care of the stored data for
you. Ruby’s GC will take care of closing connections for you.
