A puppet module for managing one or more memcached instances on Ubuntu and CentOS.


This module installs and manages one or more memcached instances through defined types.
It has been tested under Ubuntu 12.04 and CentOS 6.4 .
For other Operating Systems, the defined type memcached::instance may not work.
This module also manages the port permissions for memcached in SElinux.



Installs the memcached package. Simple install:

class {"memcached": }

Install with non-default settings:

class {"memcached":
  enabled => true,
  port    => 11211,
  listen  => "",
  size    => 64,
  conn    => 1024,
  user    => "memcached",
  • conn : max current connections
  • size : size in megabytes


Creates an extra memcached instance.

memcached::instance { "additional_1":
  port    => 11212,


memcached::instance { "additional_1":
  port    => 11212,
  listen  => "",
  size    => 64,
  conn    => 1024,
  user    => "memcached",
