Jack, I think Jon shouldn't implement this suggestion. Adjusting the timeout isn't a good way to address spawning a plethora of connections. Jon should find and fix the bug that is causing so many connections to be opened or to persist in the first place rather than simply asking the database to close connections more quickly (your suggestion). Opening or maintaining all those connections is a big waste of resources in the first place. Logically, it's also bad form to make the connections close faster than they should because that means more resources will be used setting up and tearing down connections. I'm all for timeout tuning, but it's a separate issue here. -- PHP Database Mailing List (http://www.php.net/) To unsubscribe, visit: http://www.php.net/unsub.php
