How do you backup memcachedb? Not to be confused with memcached. db_hotbackup is not supported apparently.

I'm curious to know why you want to backup since memcached is usually used for...caching. Not that there's necessarily anything wrong with your setup, I'm just intrigued :) – Michael Mior Jan 8 '10 at 15:26
Adds a storage engine. So I can turn it off/on without losing data. – user30199 Jan 8 '10 at 22:28

Have you tried the db_dump utility instead?
