memcached 1.5.22-2ubuntu0.1 source package in Ubuntu


memcached (1.5.22-2ubuntu0.1) focal; urgency=medium

  * d/p/fix-bug-where-sasl-will-load-config-the-wrong-path.patch:
    Fix the path from which SASL configuration is loaded.  (LP: #1878721)
    The bug happened because sasl expects memcached to provide a
    path (i.e., a directory, not a filename) where the sasl
    configuration file(s) is (are).  However, memcached was passing
    the filename (/etc/sasl2/memcached.conf) to sasl, which was
    interpreting it as a directory, and looking for a configuration
    file inside it (i.e., /etc/sasl2/memcached.conf/memcached.conf).
    Users could workaround this bug by creating a directory named
    /etc/sasl2/memcached.conf/, and putting the configuration file
    inside it.  This patch not only fixes this bug (by passing the
    right directory, /etc/sasl2/, to sasl) but also supports the
    workaround described above.

memcached: High-performance in-memory object caching system

 Danga Interactive developed memcached to enhance the speed of,
 a site which was already doing 20 million+ dynamic page views per day for 1
 million users with a bunch of webservers and a bunch of database servers.
 memcached dropped the database load to almost nothing, yielding faster page
 load times for users, better resource utilization, and faster access to the
 databases on a memcache miss.
 memcached optimizes specific high-load serving applications that are designed
 to take advantage of its versatile no-locking memory access system. Clients
 are available in several different programming languages, to suit the needs
 of the specific application. Traditionally this has been used in mod_perl
 apps to avoid storing large chunks of data in Apache memory, and to share
 this burden across several machines.
