Using the ElastiCache Cluster Client for .NET


The ElastiCache .NET cluster client has been deprecated as of May, 2022.

.NET client for ElastiCache is open source at

.NET applications typically get their configurations from their config file. The following is a sample application config file.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <configuration> <configSections> <section name="clusterclient" type="Amazon.ElastiCacheCluster.ClusterConfigSettings, Amazon.ElastiCacheCluster" /> </configSections> <clusterclient> <!-- the hostname and port values are from step 1 above --> <endpoint hostname="" port="11211" /> </clusterclient> </configuration>

The C# program below demonstrates how to use the ElastiCache Cluster Client to connect to a cluster configuration endpoint and add a data item to the cache. Using Auto Discovery, the program will connect to all of the nodes in the cluster without any further intervention.

// ***************** // Sample C# code to show how to integrate with the Amazon ElastiCcache Auto Discovery feature. using System; using Amazon.ElastiCacheCluster; using Enyim.Caching; using Enyim.Caching.Memcached; public class DotNetAutoDiscoveryDemo { public static void Main(String[] args) { // instantiate a new client. ElastiCacheClusterConfig config = new ElastiCacheClusterConfig(); MemcachedClient memClient = new MemcachedClient(config); // Store the data for 3600 seconds (1hour) in the cluster. // The client will decide which cache host will store this item. memClient.Store(StoreMode.Set, 3600, "This is the data value."); } // end Main } // end class DotNetAutoDiscoverDemo
