[RFC] Apache::Session::Memcached - new module proposal

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Apache::Session::Memcached - Stores persistent data using memcached (memory
cache daemon) for Apache::Session storage


   use Apache::Session::Memcached;
   tie %session, 'Apache::Session::Memcached', $sid, {

   tie %size_aware_session, 'Apache::Session::Memcached', $sid, {
      Servers => '',


Apache::Session::Memcached is a bridge between Apache::Session and
memcached, a distributed memory cache daemon.

More informations about memcached are available at
