Synopsis

#include <libmemcached/memcached.h>

Compile and link with -lmemcached

memcached_return_t memcached_callback_set(memcached_st *ptr, memcached_callback_t flag, const void *data)
Parameters
  • ptr -- pointer to initialized memcached_st struct
  • flag -- memcached_callback_t flag to set
  • data -- data corresponding to flag
Returns

memcached_return_t indicating success

void *memcached_callback_get(memcached_st *ptr, memcached_callback_t flag, memcached_return_t *error)
Parameters
  • ptr -- pointer to initialized memcached_st struct
  • flag -- memcached_callback_t flag to query
  • error -- pointer to memcached_return_t indicating success
Returns

the data previously set

typedef enum memcached_callback_t memcached_callback_t

enum memcached_callback_t
enumerator MEMCACHED_CALLBACK_CLEANUP_FUNCTION

When memcached_free() or memcached_reset is called this function will be executed. At the point of its execution all connections are closed.

Its signature is:

typedef memcached_return_t (*memcached_cleanup_fn)(const memcached_st *ptr)

enumerator MEMCACHED_CALLBACK_CLONE_FUNCTION

When memcached_clone() is called this function will be executed.

Its signature is:

typedef memcached_return_t (*memcached_clone_fn)(memcached_st *destination, const memcached_st *source)

enumerator MEMCACHED_CALLBACK_PREFIX_KEY

See MEMCACHED_CALLBACK_NAMESPACE.

enumerator MEMCACHED_CALLBACK_NAMESPACE

You can set a value which will be used to create a domain for your keys. The value specified here will be prefixed to each of your keys. The value can not be greater then MEMCACHED_MAX_NAMESPACE - 1 and will reduce MEMCACHED_MAX_KEY by the value of your key.

The prefix key is only applied to the primary key, not the master key. MEMCACHED_FAILURE will be returned if no key is set. In the case of a key which is too long, MEMCACHED_BAD_KEY_PROVIDED will be returned.

If you set a value with the value being NULL then the prefix key is disabled.

enumerator MEMCACHED_CALLBACK_USER_DATA

This allows you to store a pointer to a specific piece of data. This can be retrieved from inside of memcached_fetch_execute(). Cloning a memcached_st will copy the pointer to the clone.

enumerator MEMCACHED_CALLBACK_MALLOC_FUNCTION

Deprecated since version <0.32: Use memcached_set_memory_allocators() instead.

enumerator MEMCACHED_CALLBACK_REALLOC_FUNCTION

Deprecated since version <0.32: Use memcached_set_memory_allocators() instead.

enumerator MEMCACHED_CALLBACK_FREE_FUNCTION

Deprecated since version <0.32: Use memcached_set_memory_allocators() instead.

enumerator MEMCACHED_CALLBACK_GET_FAILURE

This function implements the read through cache behavior. On failure of retrieval this callback will be called.

You are responsible for populating the result object provided. This result object will then be stored in the server and returned to the calling process.

You must clone the memcached_st in order to make use of it. The value will be stored only if you return MEMCACHED_SUCCESS or MEMCACHED_BUFFERED. Returning MEMCACHED_BUFFERED will cause the object to be buffered and not sent immediately (if this is the default behavior based on your connection setup this will happen automatically).

The prototype for this is:

typedef memcached_return_t (*memcached_trigger_key)(memcached_st *ptr, char *key, size_t key_length, memcached_result_st *result)

enumerator MEMCACHED_CALLBACK_DELETE_TRIGGER

This function implements a trigger upon successful deletion of a key. The memcached_st structure will need to be cloned in order to make use of it.

The prototype for this is:

typedef memcached_return_t (*memcached_trigger_delete_key)(memcached_st *ptr, char *key, size_t key_length)

Description

libmemcached can have callbacks set key execution points. These either provide function calls at points in the code, or return pointers to structures for particular usages.

memcached_callback_get() takes a callback flag and returns the structure or function set by memcached_callback_set().

memcached_callback_set() changes the function/structure assigned by a callback flag. No connections are reset.

You can use MEMCACHED_CALLBACK_USER_DATA to provide custom context if required for any of the callbacks.

Return Value

memcached_callback_get() returns the function or structure that was provided. Upon error, nothing is set, NULL is returned, and the memcached_return_t argument is set to MEMCACHED_FAILURE.

memcached_callback_set() returns MEMCACHED_SUCCESS upon successful setting, otherwise MEMCACHED_FAILURE on error.
