Memcache::addServer — Add a memcached server to connection pool
$port= 11211 [, bool
Memcache::addServer() adds a server to the connection pool. You can also use the memcache_add_server() function.
When using this method (as opposed to Memcache::connect() and Memcache::pconnect()) the network connection is not established until actually needed. Thus there is no overhead in adding a large number of servers to the pool, even though they might not all be used.
Failover may occur at any stage in any of the methods, as long as other servers are available the request the user won't notice. Any kind of socket or Memcached server level errors (except out-of-memory) may trigger the failover. Normal client errors such as adding an existing key will not trigger a failover.
This function has been added to Memcache version 2.0.0.
Point to the host where memcached is listening for connections. This parameter
may also specify other transports like unix:///path/to/memcached.sock
to use UNIX domain sockets, in this case
port must also
be set to 0.
Point to the port where memcached is listening for connections. Set this parameter to 0 when using UNIX domain sockets.
port defaults to
if not specified. For this reason it is wise to specify the port
explicitly in this method call.
Controls the use of a persistent connection. Default to
Number of buckets to create for this server which in turn control its probability of it being selected. The probability is relative to the total weight of all servers.
Value in seconds which will be used for connecting to the daemon. Think twice before changing the default value of 1 second - you can lose all the advantages of caching if your connection is too slow.
Controls how often a failed server will be retried, the default value
is 15 seconds. Setting this parameter to -1 disables automatic retry.
Neither this nor the
persistent parameter has any
effect when the extension is loaded dynamically via dl().
Each failed connection struct has its own timeout and before it has expired
the struct will be skipped when selecting backends to serve a request. Once
expired the connection will be successfully reconnected or marked as failed
retry_interval seconds. The typical
effect is that each web server child will retry the connection about every
retry_interval seconds when serving a page.
Controls if the server should be flagged as online. Setting this parameter
retry_interval to -1 allows a failed
server to be kept in the pool so as not to affect the key distribution
algorithm. Requests for this server will then failover or fail immediately
depending on the
TRUE, meaning the server should be considered online.
Allows the user to specify a callback function to run upon encountering an error. The callback is run before failover is attempted. The function takes two parameters, the hostname and port of the failed server.
port is unspecified, this method defaults to the
value set of the PHP ini directive
If this value was changed elsewhere in your application it might lead to
unexpected results: for this reason it is wise to always specify the port
explicitly in this method call.
TRUE on success or
FALSE on failure.

/* OO API */
$memcache = new Memcache;
/* procedural API */
$memcache_obj = memcache_connect('memcache_host', 11211);
memcache_add_server($memcache_obj, 'memcache_host2', 11211);
