         There are other ways to speed up your PHP application besides 
(not) using persistent connections. Take a look at for some ideas. :)


I would certainly like to see a benchmark that shows "when" persistent 
connections work for MySQL.  If it were graphed properly, perhaps with 
session_timeout vs memory/cpu and is plotting pages/second, we could figure 
out if persistent connections would benefit our particular application with 
the hardware we're using.  I think there are too many variables to say "yes 
it works", or "no it doesn't" in all cases. By graphing it,  we'd get a 
better understanding of how database performance is affected by persistent 
connections vs hardware (# CPU's & memory).
