<i>Time complexity: O(1). The amortized time complexity is O(1) assuming the appended value is small and the already present value is of any size, since the dynamic string library used by Redis will double the free space available on every reallocation.</i><blockquote>If the <i>key</i> already exists and is a string, this command appends theprovided value at the end of the string.If the <i>key</i> does not exist it is created and set as an empty string, soAPPEND will be very similar to SET in this special case.</blockquote>
