Is there a way to set the memory size limit in Membase? This would be the "-m" command line option to memcached. Thanks for any help!
You can set the size limit through the UI by creating a bucket. If you need to change the size of a bucket, right now you'll need to delete it and recreate at a new size.
Does that make sense?
Let me know if you need any further assistance.

I have a NorthScale cluster with 2 servers. I have 1 bucket running, limited to 256 MB. However, the memcache.exe process is using all memory available, about 700+ MB on each machine. Is this to be expected? Is there a way to limit how much memory NorthScale should be able to use? I have other applications running on those instances, I'm concerned about performance.
Hmm, that does sound a bit odd. Can you send me the stats output for both servers? Just telnet to the server on port 11211 and type 'stats'
Actually, I think it had to do with a config problem (multiple IPs + older memcached instances running on that server). Things seem to be running well now.
Perry, thanks for the info. I was using the default bucket which was pre-sized at 64MB, so I hadn't noticed that it lets you pick a size when you make a new bucket. It would be a nice enhancement if there was a "resize" function in the bucket maintenance screen, that would delete and re-create the bucket with a different size, and prompting the user that the cache will be flushed. That might save some confusion for future users.
Thanks for the input Jeff, I've filed an enhancement request to make this a bit easier to understand.
Jeff, the new version (beta 4) allows you to edit the size of a bucket.
Thanks for your feedback!
