starting with memcached

Well, starting, but in a big way.  Want to cache some conf file lookups for
several million hits a day.  Looks like the default for max simultaneous
connections is 1024, and just wondering how well a single box handles that
many connections.  Let supposing I have 50 boxes all doing 20 connections
each, for a thousand total connections, is that a reasonable thing?  Is
there a way to limit the number of connections per host?  


We hope to shortly add a second box, but I am guessing the problem will be
similar.  Like the reads will be spread over two boxes, but we will still
likely get 20 connections to each of the two boxes.


My implementation is in perl, and I am trying to use Cache::Memcached to get
some stats about the server, and have tried each key listed under stats, but
have yet to find one that will just show me what is actually in the cache.
Does such a method exist?  Even some commandline way would be very helpful.
Or some guidance and maybe I could contribute such a method.
