In my office we sometimes have servers that hit the max_connections limit. As we sometimes have scripts that take up that 1 extra 'superuser' slot for MySQLD, we'd like to raise that.

Google really hasn't turned up much on this, is there a way to raise the number of slots?

How about setting max_connections reasonably high? Do the scripts realy have to have superuser rights? – matthias krull Mar 17 '11 at 18:05

You might want to investigate the following options:

  • increasing max_connections to a reasonable amount
  • timing out idle connections
  • using persistent connections
