Memcahe OOM error

Hi all,

I am having trouble storing
serialized Java objects that are greater than 75KB. 
The memcache servers return a "SERVER ERROR Out of
Memory" Error even though I have 5 linux servers
running, ranging from 512MB - 2GB memory.  This is the
full command of the memcache daemon running on the

memcached -vv -u root -d -m 2048 -l <server-ip> -p

I have heard that this is a common issue with
memcache.  Can anyone suggest on how to correct this ?
 Is pre-compressing Java objects before storing the
only way to go ?  Any help is appreciated.  Thank you.
