quit command is used when you want to close the connection with a Memcached server. This is generally done once all tasks have been completed, freeing up resources.
Here is an example of using the
quit function in pymemcache, a comprehensive, efficient, pure Python Memcached client:
In this script, we first create a connection to the Memcached server running on localhost at port 11211. Then, we set a key-value pair and retrieve it to verify the operation. Finally, we close the connection using
quitis called, you can't interact with that instance of Memcached until a new connection is made.
Q: Should I always use
quit to close my Memcached connections?
A: It's good practice to close connections when they're no longer required. However, not all Memcached clients implement the
quit method (like python-memcached), so check the API documentation for your specific client library.
