Did you test on OS X?
I tried replicating your results and on (intel) OS X the
Cache::Memcached client didn't get the responses from the server some
of the time. In your test module that made it refetch it via http
(slow!) ~30-40% of the time.
I didn't look very closely, but it seems like there's something wrong

Cache::Memcached on OS X. (If I increased the timeouts in
Cache::Memcached it got the response back, but was of course still
On $random_linux_system a simple single threaded test gave me ~270
gets per second for the 212kb data block (before compression) and
~3500 gets per second for a 50 byte data block.
