The verbosity command is typically used in debugging or monitoring scenarios, where it's necessary to understand what's going on internally with the Memcached instance. The 'verbosity' option allows you to specify the logging level of your Memcached server. Higher levels produce more detailed (verbose) outputs.
pymemcache library provides a client for communicating with Memcached servers. However, there isn't a direct way to set the verbosity level through pymemcache. You can instead set this when starting your Memcached server from the command line using
-vvv for higher verbosity levels.
Starting memcached server with verbosity:
Nonetheless, you can still interact with Memcached from Python as follows:
This code connects to a Memcached server running locally, sets a value for a specified key and retrieves it.
Q: How can I change the verbosity level in a running Memcached server? A: You cannot change it for a running server. The verbosity level is set when you start the Memcached server.
Q: Can I affect the verbosity from Python code? A: No, the verbosity level is configured at the server level, and not through the client API.
