consider this suitation:

Machine A
MySQL Master A
Memcached A

Machine B
MySQL Slave B
Memcached B

Support a user query a object thru complex SQL join statement from
MySQL slave B, this object is cached using Memcached B, in order to
offload the MySQL slave B

Now, a row is being updated to MySQL master A, MySQL slave B get the
update thru MySQL replication, but memcached B is still holding the
old data

How would you do in this suitation?
