MySQL 5.6 Reference Manual Including MySQL NDB Cluster 7.3-7.4 Reference Guide memcached Logs

If you enable verbose mode, using the -v, -vv, or -vvv options, then the information output by memcached includes details of the operations being performed.

Without the verbose options, memcached normally produces no output during normal operating.

All of the verbosity levels in memcached are designed to be used during debugging or examination of issues. The quantity of information generated, particularly when using -vvv, is significant, particularly on a busy server. Also be aware that writing the error information out, especially to disk, may negate some of the performance gains you achieve by using memcached. Therefore, use in production or deployment environments is not recommended.
