Are u using SQL Server as backup for ur sessions? One thing would be to drop that backup. Ur session data will remain just in the Memcached and
see if that makes a different

Another thing to try is to install memcached on both webservers and try to distribute the load.

We ran into high cpu usage using memcached 1.2.4,  try switching to 1.2.6. 

This solved our problems, our memcached servers current run at 10% cpu at peak.

Hi nminhka,
sounds like it's a scaling issue.
Do some research on scaling up and scaling out, due to the nature of memcached, the infrastructure plays a huge rule in its effective use.
There are various ways to improve scalability. Memcached is most efficient if used for a 'front-end' data serve, it's not meant to replace databases, but instead relieve the load by caching in memory.
(Memory is volatile, which means that if a server gets restarted or freezes, it loses all of its information, that's why using a database at the back-end to hold the information is a necessity.
