10.2.2 MySQLConnection.close() Method

Syntax:

cnx.close()

close() is a synonym for disconnect(). See Section 10.2.20, “MySQLConnection.disconnect() Method”.

For a connection obtained from a connection pool, close() does not actually close it but returns it to the pool and makes it available for subsequent connection requests. See Section 9.1, “Connector/Python Connection Pooling”.
