PHP 7.0.0 RC 8 Released


(PECL memcached >= 0.1.0)

Memcached::flushInvalidate all items in the cache


public bool Memcached::flush ([ int $delay = 0 ] )

Memcached::flush() invalidates all existing cache items immediately (by default) or after the delay specified. After invalidation none of the items will be returned in response to a retrieval command (unless it's stored again under the same key after Memcached::flush() has invalidated the items). The flush does not actually free all the memory taken up by the existing items; that will happen gradually as new items are stored.



Number of seconds to wait before invalidating the items.

Return Values

Returns TRUE on success or FALSE on failure. Use Memcached::getResultCode() if necessary.


Example #1 Memcached::flush() example
