We have a transaction that must lock a key in a table and no any other 
parallel transaction can access that key until the first transaction is 

We think that process will be faster using memcached.

Another question is how can I flush the memcached to the hardrive and how 
often we should do that.

I'm digging into the documents.....
Thanks for your tips...
