Clients have no idea what your memcached servers max connections is.
For example, we have 5 application servers that have a maximum of 256
instances per server. That means EACH memcached server must be able to
accept 1,280 connections. So, if you are running out of connections, I
would look at what is connecting to memcached and most likely up your
conneciton limit. Ours are set to 4,096 just for good measure.
It's good to be cheap =)
