(PHP 5, PHP 7)

mysqli::ping -- mysqli_pingPings a server connection, or tries to reconnect if the connection has gone down

Descrierea

Stil obiect-orientat

bool mysqli::ping ( void )

Stil procedural

bool mysqli_ping ( mysqli $link )

Checks whether the connection to the server is working. If it has gone down, and global option mysqli.reconnect is enabled an automatic reconnection is attempted.

This function can be used by clients that remain idle for a long while, to check whether the server has closed the connection and reconnect if necessary.

Parametri

As jay at grooveshark dot com very helpfully pointed out, the mysqlnd driver which is becoming pretty standard does not obey reconnect commands. If you have a DB wrapper class (which hopefully you do) you can implement your own version of ping() such as:

<?php

class db extends mysqli
{
    private
$db_host;
    private
$db_user;
    private
$db_pass;
    private
$db_name;
    private
$persistent;

    public function
__construct($db_host, $db_user, $db_pass, $db_name, $persistent = true)
    {
       
$this->db_host = $db_host;
       
$this->db_user = $db_user;
       
$this->db_pass = $db_pass;
       
$this->db_name = $db_name;
       
$this->persistent = $persistent;

       
parent::init();
       
parent::options(MYSQLI_OPT_CONNECT_TIMEOUT, 1);
        @
parent::real_connect(($this->persistent ? 'p:' : '') . $this->db_host, $this->db_user, $this->db_pass, $this->db_name);

        if (
$this->connect_errno)
            die(
"All DB servers down!\n");
    }

    public function
ping()
    {
        @
parent::query('SELECT LAST_INSERT_ID()');

        if (
$this->errno == 2006)
           
$this->__construct($this->db_host, $this->db_user, $this->db_pass, $this->db_name, $this->persistent);
    }
...
}

$db = new db(DB_HOST, DB_USER, DB_PASS, DB_NAME);
// Some code that potentially takes a really long time to execute goes here
// Ping for safety to try to gracefully reconnect
$db->ping();
// Now we should be able to run queries again
$db->query('SELECT LAST_INSERT_ID()');

?>

If you wanted you could even put "$this->ping();" at the top of db::query() to avoid any explicit reconnection calls but I wouldn't recommend it due to the (slight) overhead of running the cheap "SELECT LAST_INSERT_ID()" query every time prior to running your real intended query. There are probably even cheaper queries to run in favor of "SELECT LAST_INSERT_ID()" but it was the first that came to mind and is cheap enough for most purposes since you shouldn't be calling ping() a whole bunch anyway.

The behaviour about the option mysqli.reconnect is default set to Off at Debian PHP Packages. So i would recommend to update the first line description about the recommendation at the option mysqli.reconnect. (practice note ;))
