MySQL 8.0 Reference Manual  /  ...  /  InnoDB memcached Multiple get and Range Query Support

Pre-General Availability Draft: 2017-09-22

15.19.4 InnoDB memcached Multiple get and Range Query Support

The daemon_memcached plugin supports multiple get operations (fetching multiple key/value pairs in a single memcached query) and range queries.

Multiple get Operations

The ability to fetch multiple key/value pairs in a single memcached query improves read performance by reducing communication traffic between the client and server. For InnoDB, it means fewer transactions and open-table operations.

The following example demonstrates multiple-get support. The example uses the test.city table described in Creating a New Table and Column Mapping.

mysql> USE test;
mysql> SELECT * FROM test.city;
+---------+-----------+-------------+---------+-------+------+--------+
| city_id | name      | state       | country | flags | cas  | expiry |
+---------+-----------+-------------+---------+-------+------+--------+
| B       | BANGALORE | BANGALORE   | IN      |     0 |    1 |      0 |
| C       | CHENNAI   | TAMIL NADU  | IN      |     0 |    0 |      0 |
| D       | DELHI     | DELHI       | IN      |     0 |    0 |      0 |
| H       | HYDERABAD | TELANGANA   | IN      |     0 |    0 |      0 |
| M       | MUMBAI    | MAHARASHTRA | IN      |     0 |    0 |      0 |
+---------+-----------+-------------+---------+-------+------+--------+

Run a get command to retrieve all values from the city table. The results are returned in a key/value pair sequence.

telnet 127.0.0.1 11211
Trying 127.0.0.1...
Connected to 127.0.0.1.
Escape character is '^]'.
get B C D H M
VALUE B 0 22
BANGALORE|BANGALORE|IN
VALUE C 0 21
CHENNAI|TAMIL NADU|IN
VALUE D 0 14
DELHI|DELHI|IN
VALUE H 0 22
HYDERABAD|TELANGANA|IN
VALUE M 0 21
MUMBAI|MAHARASHTRA|IN
END

When retrieving multiple values in a single get command, you can switch tables (using @@containers.name notation) to retrieve the value for the first key, but you cannot switch tables for subsequent keys. For example, the table switch in this example is valid:

get @@aaa.AA BB
VALUE @@aaa.AA 8 12
HELLO, HELLO
VALUE BB 10 16
GOODBYE, GOODBYE
END

Attempting to switch tables again in the same get command to retrieve a key value from a different table is not supported.

Range Queries

For range queries, the daemon_memcached plugin supports the following comparison operators: <, >, <=, >=. An operator must be preceded by an @ symbol. When a range query finds multiple matching key/value pairs, results are returned in a key/value pair sequence.

The following examples demonstrate range query support. The examples use the test.city table described in Creating a New Table and Column Mapping.

mysql> SELECT * FROM test.city;
+---------+-----------+-------------+---------+-------+------+--------+
| city_id | name      | state       | country | flags | cas  | expiry |
+---------+-----------+-------------+---------+-------+------+--------+
| B       | BANGALORE | BANGALORE   | IN      |     0 |    1 |      0 |
| C       | CHENNAI   | TAMIL NADU  | IN      |     0 |    0 |      0 |
| D       | DELHI     | DELHI       | IN      |     0 |    0 |      0 |
| H       | HYDERABAD | TELANGANA   | IN      |     0 |    0 |      0 |
| M       | MUMBAI    | MAHARASHTRA | IN      |     0 |    0 |      0 |
+---------+-----------+-------------+---------+-------+------+--------+

Open a telnet session:

telnet 127.0.0.1 11211
Trying 127.0.0.1...
Connected to 127.0.0.1.
Escape character is '^]'.

To get all values greater than B, enter get @>B:

get @>B
VALUE C 0 21
CHENNAI|TAMIL NADU|IN
VALUE D 0 14
DELHI|DELHI|IN
VALUE H 0 22
HYDERABAD|TELANGANA|IN
VALUE M 0 21
MUMBAI|MAHARASHTRA|IN
END

To get all values less than M, enter get @<M:

get @<M
VALUE B 0 22
BANGALORE|BANGALORE|IN
VALUE C 0 21
CHENNAI|TAMIL NADU|IN
VALUE D 0 14
DELHI|DELHI|IN
VALUE H 0 22
HYDERABAD|TELANGANA|IN
END

To get all values less than and including M, enter get @<=M:

get @<=M
VALUE B 0 22
BANGALORE|BANGALORE|IN
VALUE C 0 21
CHENNAI|TAMIL NADU|IN
VALUE D 0 14
DELHI|DELHI|IN
VALUE H 0 22
HYDERABAD|TELANGANA|IN
VALUE M 0 21
MUMBAI|MAHARASHTRA|IN

To get values greater than B but less than M, enter get @>B@<M:

get @>B@<M
VALUE C 0 21
CHENNAI|TAMIL NADU|IN
VALUE D 0 14
DELHI|DELHI|IN
VALUE H 0 22
HYDERABAD|TELANGANA|IN
END

A maximum of two comparison operators can be parsed, one being either a 'less than' (@<) or 'less than or equal to' (@<=) operator, and the other being either a 'greater than' (@>) or 'greater than or equal to' (@>=) operator. Any additional operators are assumed to be part of the key. For example, if you issue a get command with three operators, the third operator (@>C) is treated as part of the key, and the get command searches for values smaller than M and greater than B@>C.

get @<M@>B@>C
VALUE C 0 21
CHENNAI|TAMIL NADU|IN
VALUE D 0 14
DELHI|DELHI|IN
VALUE H 0 22
HYDERABAD|TELANGANA|IN
