6.9.2.33 MySQLConnection.shutdown() Method

This method closes the socket. It raises no exceptions.

Unlike disconnect(), shutdown() closes the client connection without attempting to send a QUIT command to the server first. Thus, it will not block if the connection is disrupted for some reason such as network failure.

shutdown() was added in Connector/Python 2.0.1.
