Stats Using Java Application

To get stats from a Memcached server, you need to use the Memcached stats method.


import net.spy.memcached.MemcachedClient;
public class MemcachedJava {
   public static void main(String[] args) {
      // Connecting to Memcached server on localhost
      MemcachedClient mcc = new MemcachedClient(new
      InetSocketAddress("", 11211));
      System.out.println("Connection to server successful");


On compiling and executing the program, you get to see the following output −

Connection to server successful
