I have python program who accept argument on start from CLI and check that argument in memcached base, do output of result and close. Thats working ok but problem is that I have ~2000 hits in seconds for that programm so he make big load on my server.
I figurate to make program who will be run in background and recieve data from other program, open thread get result and output that result. I think that will reduce my server load alot.
Problem is that I dont know how to pass argument/parametars to runing python programm.It will be comunication between two programs (one of them is python)
How to do that? What all options i have?

I'm tempted to say you already got the solution at hand!


you said you already have a memcached base, you can use that or memcached file as parameters repository, so one program writes on there, and the other pulls off the data and makes it its parameters.
