I am having issues with the limit size of my memcached:

enter image description here

How do I increase the limit_maxbytes? as the bytes_written is more than the limit_maxbytes?

limit_maxbytes is the max memory to use for items. You're using the default value - 64MB. To change this, restart the memcached and specify a value in megabytes for -m option, something like this:

memcached -d -u memcached -l <your_IP> -c 2048 -t 8 -m 1024 -p 11215
