Return Values

Returns if the connection was successfully closed.


Version Description

Before version 1.2.0 the driver would not use persistent connections by default, and all connections would be closed as soon as a MongoDB connection went out if scope. Since version 1.2.0 this is no longer the case and it is a bad idea to call close as you might end up overloading the server with connections under high load.
