The "quit" command in Memcached is used to close the connection between the client and the Memcached server. This is commonly used when there's a need to cleanly disconnect a Golang program from a Memcached server, for instance, once the necessary caching operations are completed.
Here is an example of how to use the "quit" command in the context of a Golang program.
In this code, we first connect to the Memcached server using the
New function provided by the
gomemcache/memcache package. Then we set a value, get the value back, and finally call the
Quit method to close the connection to the Memcached server.
A common mistake is neglecting to call
Quit when done with a Memcached connection. This can lead to resource leakage in the server as unused connections may not get closed properly.
Is it necessary to use
Quit command every time after using Memcached?
It is a good practice to disconnect from the Memcached server once you're done with the operations. This ensures resources are not unnecessarily occupied.
What happens if I don't use the
Quit command in Golang for Memcached?
Quit command is not used, the connection to the server remains open until it's closed by other means (like server timeout or program termination), which could potentially use up system resources.
