There are three applications for this software:

1) Provides a means to invalidate a memcache cluster in a trigger, providing real time cache invalidation and data synchronization.

2) Can be abused as a query caching scheme (kinda like MySQL's query caching, except using pgMemcache in this context doesn't suck because it doesn't require a complete invalidation of the cache if data changes).

3) A means of having global variables between backends and even multiple PostgreSQL servers (should you configure your setup that way).

It's quite nifty. Read the presentation I wrote on the topic at:

http://people.freebsd.org/~seanc/pgmemcache/pgmemcache.pdf

And let me know if you have any questions. Any read constrained applications that don't use pgmemcache/memcache are absolutely, positively out of their mind for not doing so.
