Hooray! I posted by first Django snippet today. It’s a [status view for your memcache server(s)](http://www.djangosnippets.org/snippets/597/).
I had originally used [this snippet](http://www.djangosnippets.org/snippets/54/), but the regex and socket thing never quite sat right with me.
Turns out that django.core.cache has a _cache object with a nice get_status() function. It returns a list of tuples — one for each server in your CACHE_BACKEND setting — the first item of each tuple is the server name/IP and port, the second item of the tuple is a dictionary with all the relevant stats you could need.
