This is purely speculative, so please don’t think I know how to do
this. I’m throwing this out so hopefully, if a good idea, the right
people can create the example.
Memcached has a good assortment of Perl clients.
Nginx has a means of embedding Perl into the configuration.
Couldn’t there be a way of combining these to immediately populate the
cache when the cache returns missing?
By the way, I’m looking at this as a means of improving I/O for static
pages (on SliceHost). Ideally nginx’s Memcached Module would have the
ability to do this when the requested filename exists on the hard drive:
