mysqli::$thread_id

mysqli_thread_id

(PHP 5)

mysqli::$thread_id -- mysqli_thread_idReturns the thread ID for the current connection

Description

Object oriented style

Procedural style

int mysqli_thread_id ( mysqli $link )

The mysqli_thread_id() function returns the thread ID for the current connection which can then be killed using the mysqli_kill() function. If the connection is lost and you reconnect with mysqli_ping(), the thread ID will be other. Therefore you should get the thread ID only when you need it.

Note:

The thread ID is assigned on a connection-by-connection basis. Hence, if the connection is broken and then re-established a new thread ID will be assigned.

To kill a running query you can use the SQL command KILL QUERY processid.

Parameters

link

Procedural style only: A link identifier returned by mysqli_connect() or mysqli_init()

Return Values

Returns the Thread ID for the current connection.

$thread_id $mysqli->thread_id;

/* Kill connection */
$mysqli->kill($thread_id);

    exit();
}

/* determine our thread id */

mysqli_kill($link$thread_id);
