The 'quit' method in PHP Memcached is typically used when you want to close an established connection with the Memcached server. This situation usually arises when you have finished your operations and no longer need the connection, thus releasing resources.
Let's look at a basic example:
In this code, we create a new instance of the Memcached object and add a server to it using
addServer(). After we've executed all necessary operations on the Memcached server, we then close the connection using
Another example could be when using multiple Memcached servers:
In this case, we're connecting to multiple Memcached servers. After performing the required operations, we use
quit() to close connections to all servers.
quit()once all operations are done. While PHP often automatically closes the connection at the end of script execution, it's good practice to explicitly do so.
quit()function doesn't provide feedback on success or failure. Hence, ensure that there aren't any operations left before calling it.
Not closing the connection: Leaving the connection open unnecessarily can tie up resources and negatively impact performance. Always make sure to close the connection when you're done with it.
quit() also clear data from the Memcached server?
A: No, the
quit() function only closes the connection to the server; it does not delete or clear any data from the server.
