Full Description


Base docker image to run a Memcached server


To create the image tutum/memcached, execute the following command on the tutum-docker-memcached folder:

docker build -t tutum/memcached .

To run the image and bind to port 11211:

docker run -d -p 11211:11211 tutum/memcached

The first time that you run your container, a new user memcached with all privileges
will be created in Memcached with a random password. To get the password, check the logs
of the container by running:

docker logs <CONTAINER_ID>

You will see an output like the following:

You can now connect to this Memcached server using:

      USERNAME:admin      PASSWORD:h0znMbk3RkM8

Please remember to change the above password as soon as possible!

In this case, h0znMbk3RkM8 is the password assigned to the admin user.


Setting a specific password for the admin account

If you want to use a preset password instead of a random generated one, you can
set the environment variable MEMCACHED_PASS to your specific password when running the container:

docker run -d -p 11211:11211 -e MEMCACHED_PASS="mypass" tutum/memcached

Testing with Python

First, install bmemcached. To do this, use pip or easy_install:

pip install python-binary-memcached

Testing tutum/memcached:

>>> import bmemcached
>>> client = bmemcached.Client(('localhost:11211',),'admin','h0znMbk3RkM8')
>>> client.set('key','value')
>>> print client.get('key')

Mounting a file volume
