Wiping clean the contents of a server

Wipe contents of memcached servers


#include <libmemcached/memcached.h>

memcached_return_t memcached_flush(memcached_st *ptr, time_t expiration)

Compile and link with -lmemcached


:c:func::memcached_flush is used to wipe clean the contents of memcached servers. It will either do this immediately or expire the content based on the expiration time passed to the method (a value of zero causes an immediate flush). The operation is not atomic to multiple servers, just atomic to a single server. That is, it will flush the servers in the order that they were added.


A value of type memcached_return_t is returned On success that value will be MEMCACHED_SUCCESS. Use memcached_strerror to translate this value to a printable string.
