php7 + memcache: stable?

We'd like to run our Drupal 7 sites with php7. The only trouble we have so far has to do with the PECL memcache(d) extensions - no stable release supporting php7 has been published yet:



  • The PECL/memcached package is being discussed in this issue where people are actively waiting for a stable release to move to php7 (some of them ended up moving to Redis because it was taking too long)

    Seeking reviews for an improvement to Memcache's time-based expiration/invalidation logic

    Hello there.

    While working on a large site a coworker discovered that there was a problem with the Memcache module's cache clearing and time-based expiration & invalidation.

    My coworker devised a very simple scenario that tested what the Memcache module was doing:



  • Store some data in the cache via cache_set($data, $cid).
  • Verify what data is contained in the cache using cache_get($cid).
  • Clear the entire cache bin via cache_clear_all('*', $bin, TRUE).

    Backend caching forms?

    We have a fairly normal multi-server setup: haproxy -> varnish -> drupal

    We have drupal using a single memcache instance for all the caches except cache_form (we had 2 for redundancy, but since we're trying to debug this problem we're running it on a single instance).

    All the urls that contain '/admin' are excluded from varnish (even though the cookie does that too, we just wanted to make sure this was not the problem).

    So what happens is: a lot of the backend forms get cached.

    Advices for tuning my server for better performance and scalability

    I am working on a web application which will primarily be used by authenticated users. The web application imports records from CSV files using the Feeds module, MongoDB was chosen to store this data because it is much faster to do the writes rather than in MySQL. The application is importing thousands of records every day really fast. The records are referenced to the users and when they log in, they can consult their information. The application is also used as an API for the mobile app.

    I have a 17gb AWS EC2 Instance as the server.
