GoOffline

void GoOffline()

Shuts down our connection to the FirebaseDatabase backend until GoOnline() is called.

GoOnline

void GoOnline()

Resumes our connection to the FirebaseDatabase backend after a previous GoOffline() Call.

PurgeOutstandingWrites

void PurgeOutstandingWrites()

The FirebaseDatabase client automatically queues writes and sends them to the server at the earliest opportunity, depending on network connectivity.

The FirebaseDatabase client automatically queues writes and sends them to the server at the earliest opportunity, depending on network connectivity. In some cases (e.g. offline usage) there may be a large number of writes waiting to be sent. Calling this method will purge all outstanding writes so they are abandoned. All writes will be purged, including transactions and DatabaseReference.OnDisconnect() writes. The writes will be rolled back locally, perhaps triggering events for affected event listeners, and the client will not (re-)send them to the Firebase backend.
