Do you know which version the eviction stats were added? We are running 1.1.12 (which came on the Ubuntu server CD I think)

	edit /etc/sysconfig/memcached (or wherever 'grep SYSCONFIG 
	/etc/init.d/memcached' tells you to find your configuration file; dunno
	if it's different on ubuntu - I use CentOS) to specify CACHESIZE="8000"
	for 8GB.  (or should it be 8196?)

	you have stats for number of sets, gets, cache_hits, and evictions,
	which probably are what you're looking for.
