Just recently setup new relic for a site and was surprised to see how much of the server's response time is being spent on memcache reads/writes. On a sample response, the breakdown is something like this:
PHP: 312 ms
Database: 143 ms
Memcache: 201 ms
External Web Service: 17 ms
Am I correct in thinking the memcache time is way too high? Or is this similar to other people's experience?
Thanks in advance for your thoughts.
The folks at 10gen are offering 2 free courses in MongoDB (see https://education.10gen.com/) - one on creating applications using MongoDB and a second on deploying and administering MongoDB. From what the site says, you will also receive a certificate upon successful completion of the course. I've signed up for the latter so far (and hopefully if the program continues, sign up for the former next year). As I already mentioned, the courses are free but you have to sign up before the first set of homework is due on Monday the 29th.Read more

I work for a company that installed drupal about a year ago.
We provide content management services for a particular market niche.
We're currently doing OK mysql wise with a master feeding a slave backup server. However, we're growing pretty quickly and we may need a higher performance architecture in a year or so.
We're also very keen for the system to be very robust, and the time required for failover to the backup db server gives us some heartburn.
I'm working on a couple of applications that will deploy on EC2, and we're having a hell of a time getting error output (calls to error_log(), php errors, etc.) sent to anything but a text error log.
Any ideas as to what the issue is here? Is this even possible right now with php5-fpm and nginx????
Here's what I've tried.
Going to a text log is easy enough if we put
error_log = /some/damn/path/error.log
into a pool configuration for php5-fpm on Ubuntu (11.10 at the moment).

introduce a high performance free hosting (for drupal)--sae---a GAE like China project , i just finished deploy drupal 6 there
ok , example first to prove that i am telling the truth : http://trackself.sinaapp.com/ just feel its speed!
1.SAE: sina app engine , belong to sina.com (China), it's a service like google app engine ,but provide PHP hosting and mysql hosting and more! well , i think it's better than GAE, because i only know php but not python/java. It declare itself cloud service. And better than GAE, it use SVN.
2.Since it offer php and mysql hosting , drupal can be hosted. But a little hack to install.php , nothing more hack
