Syntax

int mysql_kill(MYSQL * mysql,
               unsigned long);

Description

This function is used to ask the server to kill a MariaDB thread specified by the processid parameter. This value must be retrieved by SHOW PROCESSLIST. If trying to kill the own connection mysql_thread_id() should be used.

Returns 0 on success, otherwise nonzero.

To stop a running command without killing the connection use KILL QUERY. The mysql_kill() function only kills a connection, it doesn't free any memory - this must be done explicitly by calling mysql_close().
