Sure, but his question is specifically about adding memcached to an
existing application. In that case, you are past the explain stage. He
needs to learn where the bottlenecks are for his application. They
could not be SQL related at all. We have found there are large blocks
of code that we want to skip and memcache the resulting data from them.
