( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??
I am trying to learn memcached, so I installed it on my laptop and fired it up. I also created a simple SQLite db 'mem.sqlite' like so

CREATE TABLE t (id INTEGER PRIMARY KEY, str TEXT)

and filled the table with 20_000 random strings. Then I used the following simplistic script to benchmark.

use Cache::Memcached; my $memd = new Cache::Memcached {'servers' => [ "localhost:11212" ]}; use DBI qw(:sql_types); my $dbh = DBI->connect("dbi:SQLite:dbname=mem.sqlite"); use Benchmark qw(:all); my $count = 40_000; cmpthese($count, { 'query_dbh' => sub { my $id = int(rand(20_000)); my $sth = $dbh->prepare("SELECT str FROM t WHERE id = ?"); $sth->execute($id); my ($str) = $sth->fetchrow_array; open F, ">", "foo.txt" or die $!; print F "id: $id, str: $str\n"; close F; }, 'query_mem' => sub { my $id = int(rand(20_000)); open F, ">", "foo.txt" or die $!; my $str = $memd->get($id); unless ($str) { my $sth = $dbh->prepare("SELECT str FROM t WHERE id = ?"); $sth->execute($id); ($str) = $sth->fetchrow_array; $memd->set($id, $str); } print F "id: $id, str: $str\n"; close F; } }); Rate query_mem query_dbf query_mem 2723/s -- -29% query_dbh 3846/s 41% --

I consistently get results such as above, while I expected the memcache to slowly fill up and speed up the queries way faster than only accessing the file based db. What am I doing wrong, or are my expectations wrong?
