Subject:RE: mysql threads too high
View as plain text  
If I turn the pooling off the connection going up the roof, none stay sleep, I have about
40 queries per min for each connection, its take long time to open the connection, some of
the queries are very complex and involve lots of join and some on 2 different databases.

Opening one connection at the time (and close it - yes with .close - it been tried.) is
not an option, as it is slowing the application drastically.
It is windows base application, there is no 'block' of quires, users can't go any farther
until the query finish, furthermore some queries are background work that need to update
the user screen every 5 Min.

The application been tested with all the option you suggested and the best solution is
with pooling, the application running in 4 locations, no problem on 3 of them
Only one location having this problem. The one we have the problem is the most powerful
server 12GB memory and 12 core CPU.
This application is for the NHS and lots of testing done on it to see the best solution,
and it is running on 2 locations (about 300 users in each) with no problem.
The location that having this problem is actually the one with fewer users, only 180.

The My.ini is identical in all location, the application identical in all location.

Could it be the server too fast??!!

No, changing the application now can't be done - it will require NHS approval all over
again - it is running fine on 3 locations.

It is not "definitely a MySQL issue". Turn off your pooling. If the connection count stays
high (many of them in the Sleep state) then your application is NOT closing them properly.
This is a coding/usage problem.

Also, you do not need to open a new connection for every little thing.
Open one connection per block of work to perform.  Also, do not leave your connections or
transactions open while waiting for a person to do something.

For example, a web-based application will generally need only one or two connections per
page. Transactions should not remain active between page accesses as each request will use
a different connection even if they are coming from a pool.

Remember, abandoning a connection object for garbage collection or closing the TCP/IP
socket is not the same as actually calling the
.close() method for your connection library.

Let us know your results.
