A simple tools for finding keys/values in a memcached server or cluster

Project description


A simple tool for finding keys and values in a memcached server or cluster. Especailly good for locating values in WordPress's object cache when you do not know the cache key.


Install from pip:

pip install memcached-search


Supports Python 2 and 3 (tested on 2.7.15 and 3.6). Requires the following packages:



Usage: memcached-search [OPTIONS] COMMAND [ARGS]...

  Debug your memcached server by searching for cache keys

  --host TEXT     memcached server ip
  --port INTEGER  memcached port
  --help          Show this message and exit.

  find   search for cache keys matching a regex...
  get    Get value from cache by cache key
  items  List all items in memcached server


By default, memcached-search connects to memcached runnging on localhost, on the default port of 11211. This can be customized by creating a JSON formatted config file in the current users home directory: ~/.memcached-search. This file should contain a JSON array whos elements are arrays of server and port combonations for each server to connect to.

    ["localhost", 11211],
    ["localhost", 11212]
